The economic feasibility of creating a large database of document image has left a tremendous need for robust ways to access the information. Printed documents are scanned for archiving or in an attempt to move towards a paperless office and are stored as images. In this paper, the authors provide a survey of methods developed by researchers to access document images. The survey includes papers covering the current state of art on the research in document image retrieval based on images such as signature, logo, machine-print, different fonts etc.
