Abstract: Finding and exploring relevant information from a huge amount of available information is crucial in today’s world. The information need can be a specific and precise search or a broad exploratory search, or even something between the two. Therefore, an entity-based search engine could provide a solution for combining these two search goals. The focus in this study is to 1) study previous research articles on different approaches for entity-based information retrieval and 2) implement a system which tries to provide a solution for both information need and exploratory information search, regardless of whether the search was made by using basic free form query or query with multiple entities. It is essential to improve search engines to support different types of information need in the incessantly expanding information space.
