Abstract

An approach to thematic document classification, clusterization and investigation of document flows and collections based on domain-oriented dictionaries (DODs) is considered. It is simple enough to be used by, say, a secretary that frequently needs to classify and search large amounts of documents. However, for good results, such an approach requires a solid technology for construction and maintenance of the DODs; this task is to be performed by experts or advanced users. A DOD represents a specific subject topic and is constructed on the basis of the analysis of a collection of documents representing this topic, selected by a group of experts. The toolkit facilitates the development of a hierarchical system of DODs by the application of a set of heuristic criteria for the selection of the keywords from such a document collection representing one subject domain. In the paper, the application of the DODs developed with the toolkit for information retrieval is illustrated with examples.
