This special issue of the journal Future Internet seeks papers reporting high quality theoretical or empirical studies of Web information behavior. Web technologies seek to support people’s information behavior. Web information behavior is an important topic area for the future internet, the Web search engine companies and the information research community. The future internet will be shaped by people’s information behavior and the technologies developed to support those information behaviors. Web information behavior research includes a diverse range of theoretical and empirical approaches, including individual or collaborative models, information seeking, information foraging, information sense-making, information organising, information using and Web search (including interactive/cognitive information retrieval). Modeling people's Web information behavior is a major multidisciplinary research challenge, including fields such as computer science, library and information science, cognitive science, human-computer interaction, communication studies, information systems, etc.
High quality research papers are sought on any aspect of modeling or technologically supporting individual or collaborative Web information behavior, including information seeking, information foraging, information sense-making, information organising, information using and Web search approaches.
