Abstract  

This paper reviews the research on XML retrieval from the prospect of information retrieval process. At first, the paper reviews separately on four parts:XML query language, XML indexing, XML retrieval ranking approaches, and evaluation of XML retrieval. Then, a number of XML retrieval hotspots are introduced. At last, it summaries and briefly describes some issues which need further study.

Key wordsXML retrieval        XML query language        XML indexing        XML retrieval models        XML retrieval evaluation        XML retrieval hotspots
