It is the ability to search for similar documents. Similar in a search context may be similar to a document in a result set or similar to an example document.

Similarity searching may consist in:

  • Finding documents similar to the selected document, or based on input of a full document or a chunk of a document submitted via the search interface,
  • Within the scope of the original query, finding documents similar to the selected document,
  • Within the scope of the original query, finding documents different from the selected document.
