Paper entitled, A Markov Chain Model for Changes in Users’ Assessment of Search Results, by Zhitomirsky, Levene and Bar-Ilan published in open access journal PLOS ONE.
Previous research shows that users tend to change their assessment of search results over time. The paper is a first study that investigates the factors and reasons for these changes, and describes a stochastic model of user behaviour that may explain these changes.
