Hyperstructure maintenance costs in large-scale wikis is a 2008 conference paper written in English by Boulain P., Shadbolt N., Gibbins N. and published in CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

[edit] Abstract

Wiki systems have developed over the past years as lightweight, community-editable, web-based hypertext systems. With the emergence of Semantic Wikis, these collections of interlinked documents have also gained a dual role as adhoc RDF [8] graphs. However, their roots lie at the limited hypertext capabilities of the World Wide Web [1]: embedded links, without support for composite objects or transclusion. In this paper, we present experimental evidence that hyperstructure changes, as opposed to content changes, form a substantial proportion of editing effort on a large-scale wiki. The experiment is set in the wider context of a study of how the technologies developed during decades of hypertext research may be applied to improve management of wiki document structure and, with semantic wikis, knowledge structure.
