'''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.

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.
