    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


    Improvements to the user interface of our search tools will play a prominent role toward improving search outcomes in the future. Three such improvements are proposed and evaluated in an exploratory investigation. This is a work in progress and at present, the reported results are preliminary. Nevertheless, significant findings indicate that the way the interface is configured can result in searchers adopting different interaction strategies. The main goals of this research have been to optimise visual and textual information presented on search user interfaces.
