This article classifies full-text information retrieval applications into three classes depending on the nature of data in the data base and the queries posed to the data base. This classification may explain the discrepancy found in information retrieval tests, and may also shed new light on an ongoing debate in the profession about the efficiency of full text retrieval in relation to precision, recall and "output overload". an experimental method to handle the latter problem, based on visualization is introduced.
