Code / Coded / Coding

Definition(s)

The action of Labeling a Document as Relevant or Non-Relevant, or the set of Labels resulting from that action. Sometimes interpreted narrowly to include only the result(s) of a Manual Review effort; sometimes interpreted more broadly to include automated or semi-automated Labeling efforts. Coding is generally the term used in the legal industry; Labeling is the equivalent term in Information Retrieval. 1
