The journal Future Internet (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/futureinternet) (ISSN 1999-5903) is a new peer-reviewed, open access journal on Internet technologies and the information society. Future Internet is published by Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI).
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.
Potential contributors are invited to submit a paper via email to the Special Issue Editor by 1 October 2009. Authors will be notified by 1 November 2009 as to the status of their paper. Final revised manuscripts should be not more than 25 pages single-spaced in length and are due on 1 December 2009.
