For the participation of Dublin City University (DCU) in the Relevance Feedback (RF) track of INEX 2010, we investigated the relation between the length of relevant text passages and the number of RF terms. In our experiments, relevant passages are segmented into non-overlapping windows of xed length which are sorted by similarity with the query. In each retrieval iteration, we extend the current query with the most frequent terms extracted from these word windows. The number of feedback terms corresponds to a constant number, a number proportional to the length of relevant passages, and a number inversely proportional to the length of relevant passages, respectively. Retrieval experiments show a signicant increase in MAP for INEX 2008 training data and improved precisions at early recall levels for the 2010 topics as compared to the baseline Rocchio feedback.
