Effect of topic domain and task type on Web image searching
Tseng, Liang-Chun Jack & Tjondronegoro, Dian W. (2010) Effect of topic domain and task type on Web image searching. In Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Computer-Human Interaction Special Interest Group of Australia on Computer-Human Interaction, ACM, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, QLD, pp. 348-351.
Many user studies in Web information searching have found the significant effect of task types on search strategies. However, little attention was given to Web image searching strategies, especially the query reformulation activity despite that this is a crucial part in Web image searching. In this study, we investigated the effects of topic domains and task types on user’s image searching behavior and query reformulation strategies. Some significant differences in user’s tasks specificity and initial concepts were identified among the task domains. Task types are also found to influence participant’s result reviewing behavior and query reformulation strategies.
