Abstract

The medical domain has an abundance of textual resources of varying quality. The quality of medical articles depends largely on their publication types. However, identifying high-quality medical articles from search results is till date a manual and time-consuming process. We present a simple, rule-based, post-retrieval approach to automatically identify medical articles belonging to three high-quality publication types. Our approach simply uses title and abstract information of the articles to perform this. Our experiments show that such a rule-based approach has close to 100% precision and recall for the three publication types.
