NAA bias stands for 'No Abstract Available' bias and refers to failures in academic research and academic publishing. Without a full abstract, researchers will often ignore articles that could have a high degree of revelance. This problem is amplified by the lack of search engines for academic material that rival search engines such as A9 or Google. When searching for a given phenomenon, often many spurious results are gleamed. This overload of information will likely cause the researcher to discard any returned results that can be fully qualified - as is the case of a returned article that lacks an abstract. With only the title to base the article's revelance, this reduces the search results' value.
