Term extraction is a major concern for information retrieval. Terms are not fixed forms and their variations prevent them from being identified by a match with their initial string or inflection. We show that a local syntactic approach to this problem can give good results for both the quality of identification and parsing time. A specific tool, FASTR, is… (More)
We talk, in this paper, about the operation of indexation at INIST. We present two experiments carried out within the Department of Research and New Products that aim at the automation of indexation process. The first one comes within the scope of scientometric studies on text database. We have developped a software toolbox with which we can build a chain… (More)
