Advancement in Information Foraging Theory
ABSTRACT
This paper presents the advantages of information foraging theory matched with traditional information retrieval theory and user behavior analysis theory, a search content framework for information foraging theory is described, on a thor- ough review of the two research branches i.e. the basic concept of information foraging theory and the elementary mod- els of information foraging theory, an extended framework is proposed,. Several problems for future research are also identified through.
