Stratified Hypermedia Structures for Information Disclosure

Bruza, Peter D. & van der Weide, Theo (1992) Stratified Hypermedia Structures for Information Disclosure. The Computer Journal, 35(3), pp. 208-220.


In this paper we generalize the two level approach approach to hypertext (hypermedia) systems into stratified hypermedia structures. First we describe the overall architecture of such systems, including the fundamentals of the user interface. Thereafter, its various components are discussed. Special emphasis is paid to how the underlying information model is layered. Two layers are featured: the hyperbase and the hyperindex. A characterization calculus is presented for the characterization of structured elements. This calculus forms the basis of a logic based approach in connection with the associated information processor (Disclosure Machine). The logic based approach is considered as the most general approach to the retrieval process. In addition, this calculus is useful for quality assurance in hypermedia applications. Attention is also paid to spatial coherence for relevance judgements.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
