Representation and comparison are usually considered the two core processes in traditional IR. Comparison is between two representations: representation of text and representation of user need. Much of the research in IR had concentrated on indexing techniques for representing the contents of documents and retrieval techniques that compare documents to queries (Salton & McGill, 1983; van Rijsbergen, 1979). Two underlying assumptions of the traditional IR view are: (1) the information need is static and can be specified; (2) there is only one form of information-seeking behavior (Belkin, 1993).
