Activity: Talks and presentations › Conference presentations
Data search has received more attention recently partly due to the open research data movement and the availability of the Google Database Search system. Issues of data discovery services have been explored by service providers. Yet we have a limited understanding of user search behavior in the process of data discovery. In this talk, I will present research findings from a quantitative and qualitative analysis of search logs in a data discovery portal, with particular emphasis on the query reformulation process. Implications for user-centric data discovery services, methodological reflections on user modeling, and enhancement of user experience in search processes from interdisciplinary perspectives will be discussed.
