This page contains a collection of scientific publications, which may be useful for research in the context of the RENDER project. On this basis we evaluated metrics which were already used in recent research and define new ones in sense of diversity and the particular aspects relevant for RENDER. Read more about the tasks within the case study.

Feel free to add relevant literature regarding diversity, quality and user behaviour in Wikipedia!
