The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing

Natural-language processing and automatic indexing

The Indexer: The International Journal of Indexing (1990), 17, (1), 21–29.

Abstract

The task of producing satisfactory indexes by automatic means has been tackled on two fronts: by statistical analysis of text and by attempting content analysis of the text in much the same way as a human indexcr does. Though statistical techniques have a lot to offer for free-text database systems, neither method has had much success with back-of-the-bopk indexing. This review examines some problems associated with the application of natural-language processing techniques to book texts.
