Hi, I'm a PhD student at Nanyang Technological
doing research in automatic summarization, supervised by Drs. Chris Khoo
and Na Jin Cheon.
I'm looking for assessors to evaluate three types of summaries of research
papers -- as part of my PhD project. The assessors should be PhD
candidates, researchers or faculty in LIS or Computer Science. (PhD
candidates should have passed their qualifying exams or proposal defense.)
They should also be native English speakers, as the quality of writing is
part of the evaluation.
*The task* The task is to evaluate the quality of three summaries of
research papers on a particular topic from JASIST, J. Doc. & JIS. Each
task will take about 30 min.; each assessor will be requested to do 3
tasks (1.5 to 2 hours altogether).
*Payment* I can offer a token payment of US$20 for the 3 tasks, to be paid
to the assessor's Paypal account after receipt of the evaluations.
*The topics* The summaries are on the following topics. You can indicate 3
topics as your preference - though I can't promise to assign you the
topics of your choice.
- Attribution theory
- Citation analysis
- Collaborative filtering
- Digital library users
- Information architecture
- Information kiosks
- Information needs
- Information retrieval
- Journal usage
- Knowledge sharing
- Language translation
- Recommender systems
- Searchers, Searcher behaviour
- User behaviour
- Web searching
If you are able to help me with the evaluation, please

with some background information about yourself. The research results
will be anonymized in any publication, and the identity of the assessors
and their background information will be kept strictly confidential and
will be available only to me and my supervisors.
