Sanderson, M. (1997) Duplicate Detection in the Reuters Collection. Technical Report. Department of Computing Science , University of Glasgow.
While conducting some experiments with the Reuters collection, it was discovered that contained within it were a number of documents that were exact duplicates of each other (see Figure 1). A short study was conducted to try to discover how many such documents there were. The results of this study revealed that the notion of a duplicate document was not as simple as first thought.
The contents of this report are as follows. A brief review of previous duplicate detection research will be presented, followed by a description of the methods and results of the duplicate detection work conducted here. In addition, there is an appendix holding the document ids of the various types of duplicate found.
