Exploratory Search in Wikipedia is a 2006 conference paper by Fissaha Adafre, Sisay, de Rijke, Maarten and published in Proceedings SIGIR 2006 workshop on Evaluating Exploratory Search Systems (EESS).

[edit] Abstract

We motivate the need for studying the search, discovery and retrieval requirements of Wikipedia users. Based on a sample from an experimental Wikipedia search engine, we hypothesize that the fraction of Wikipedia searches that are exploratory in nature is at least the same as that of general web searches. We also describe a questionnaire for eliciting search, discovery and retrieval requirements from Wikipedia users.
