The Cranfield Collection has been the pioneer collection in information retrieval to validate a system's effectiveness.

The test file at tests/sample.php can be executed right away to do the parsing and do a search for a single test query. Customize it to your needs if needed.
You can read Cranfield/cranfield-collection/cranqrel for Glassgow's qrels result.
I've also included SMART system's stopword list for standardization (see stopwords/stopwords.txt).
