Concepto, forma y longitud de los términos preferentes del tesauro: una propuesta de indicadores de calidad [Concept, form and length of the thesaurus preferred terms: a proposal for quality indicators]

Source: OAI


In order to evaluate concept, form and length of thesaurus preferred terms, four indicators are proposed: 1) percentage of preferred terms designating more than one concept, 2) mean of words per preferred term, 3) percentage of preferred terms with non standard grammatical forms, and 4) percentage of preferred terms with non standard singular and plural forms. A test was carried out on three thesauri, showing nonconformities regarding the four indicators. We conclude that the proposed indicators can be useful for quality evaluation of thesaurus design and development.
