dfText classification algorithms for
sports injury prevention

2012/05/29 : paper uploaed.

It is widely accepted that text categorization techniques can play an important role in systematic review or when collecting scientific evidences for clinical practices. Although text classifiers have been proposed for many medical fields, there are no text classifiers for sports injury prevention. Our research aims to develop classifiers that distinguish original articles about the effectiveness of sports injury preventions from irrelevant articles. Classifiers could also be applied to judge articles for sub-categories among various sports injury preventions such as types of sports, types of injuries, and types of preventions.
