We purposely use the term information disclosure in this context. When using the term information disclosure we envision a computer supported mechanism that allows for an easy and intuitive formulation of queries in a language that is as close to the user’s perception of the universe of discourse as possible. From this point of view, it is only obvious that we do not consider a simple query mechanism where users have to enter complex queries manually and look up what information is stored in a…

Supporting Information Disclosure in an Evolving Environment

Even if high-level query languages are used, query formulation may cause problems in case of large and complex application domains, and the history of the application domain should be recorded, and be retrievable.

Interactive Query Formulation using Point to Point Queries

This article proposes the point to point query mechanism that can be combined with the existing mechanism into an unprecedented computer supported query formulation mechanism, and discusses some of the pragmatic and theoretical issues involved.

An Information System organized as Stratied Hypermedia

It is shown how query formulation in a traditional information system can be regarded as a stratified hypermedia featuring two levels of abstraction, including the structure of the stored information.

Organising an Information System as Stratied Hypermedia

The information disclosure problem begins with a person having an information need that they wish to fulfil, which leads to a request q, which has to be matched against the characterization of information objects available in the information base.

Using Visual ER Query Systems in Real World Applications

Experiences from using a visual ER-based query system within large organisations using Hybris, a system used by end-users for retrieving information from relational databases, are presented.

Stratified Hypermedia Structures for Information Disclosure

The overall architecture of hypertext (hypermedia) systems, including the fundamentals of the user interface, are described, and a characterisation calculus is presented for the characterisation of structured elements.

On indexing, retrieval and the meaning of about

This paper shows how aboutness is related to probability of satisfaction and shows that about is, in fact, not the central concept in a theory of document retrieval.


A language for conceptual data modelling techniques, which is a generalisation of object-role models (such as ER or NIAM), is defined, in which not only constraints, but also queries and updates can be expressed on a conceptual level.

String indexing

This updated book has been updated and now you can own the string indexing, which may not find in the other place, but here, it's very easy.
