simIReff: Stochastic Simulation for Information Retrieval Evaluation: Effectiveness Scores

Provides tools for the stochastic simulation of effectiveness scores to mitigate data-related limitations of Information Retrieval evaluation research, as described in Urbano and Nagler (2018) <doi:10.1145/3209978.3210043>. These tools include: fitting, selection and plotting distributions to model system effectiveness, transformation towards a prespecified expected value, proxy to fitting of copula models based on these distributions, and simulation of new evaluation data from these distributions and copula models.
