Reader Preferences and Behavior on Wikipedia - scientific work about Wikipedia quality published in 2014, written by Janette Lehmann, Claudia Müller-Birn, David Laniado, Moùnia Làlmas and Andreas Kaltenbrunner.

Overview

Wikipedia is a collaboratively-edited online encyclopaedia that relies on thousands of editors to both contribute articles and maintain their quality. Over the last years, research has extensively investigated this group of users while another group of Wikipedia users, the readers, their preferences and their behavior have not been much studied. This paper makes this group and its %their activities visible and valuable to Wikipedia's editor community. Authors carried out a study on two datasets covering a 13-months period to obtain insights on users preferences and reading behavior in Wikipedia. Authors show that the most read articles do not necessarily correspond to those frequently edited, suggesting some degree of non-alignment between user reading preferences and author editing preferences. Authors also identified that popular and often edited articles are read according to four main patterns, and that how an article is read may change over time. Authors illustrate how this information can provide valuable insights to Wikipedia's editor community.
