A relevance ranking method for citation-based search results

Chris Belter, one of our NIH Library Informationists just published an article on an exciting new bibliometrics method he developed. The method, which uses relevance ranking to help with information retrieval in systematic searches, is intended more as a supplement for traditional systematic search methods rather than a replacement for them. However, his research suggests that this new method has “relatively high recall, higher precision, seemingly meaningful relevance ranks, and faster completion time” than a more traditional method would.
