As databases get larger and become accessible to a more diverse and less technically-oriented audience, exploration or recommendation style database interactions are attractive and useful. We propose assisting users in database exploration by recommending to them additional items that are highly related with the items in the result of their original query. Our recommendations are based solely on the result of the user query. No log of previous results is required.
