We exploit the retrieval of visual information from biomedical scientific publication databses. Therefore, we consider the use of domain specific genres to automatically subdivide large image databases into smaller, consistent parts. Combination with Latent Semantic Indexing on the picture captions allows for efficient retrieval of images in specific categories. We demonstrate our approach on a large collection of images with captions form the Elsevier Brain Research publications. Initial result demonstrate the power of the proposed combination.
