Automatic indexing of text documents: Essential criteria proposal

Graciane Silva Bruzinga Borges, Gercina Angela Borem de Oliveira Lima (pp. 360-379)
The volume of documents currently being published demands great effort in order to devise alternative indexing techniques for them; undertaking this process manually is a very slow process. In this research project, automatic indexing criteria that have been used most frequently since the 1950s have been identified. The work was divided into two main stages: (1) identification of the automatic indexing criteria found in the literature and, (2) a proposal for a set of ideal criteria for the automatic indexing process.
