Activity Definition(s)

Relevance ranking uses a variety of techniques to estimate the significance of content to a given context or question.  Ranking can be the result of an automated analysis of the internal characteristics of the object, such as the frequency of appearance and placement of terms within a text or metadata set.  It can be the product of social software and community ranking.  Or it can be the work of an individual scholar or small working group.  These approaches are not exclusive of each other and can potentially be implemented in complementary ways.
