In a perfect world, all articles consistently contain sufficient metadata to describe the resource. We know this is not the reality, so we are motivated to investigate the evolution of the metadata that is present when authors and publishers supply their own. Because applying metadata takes time, we recognize that each news article author has a limited metadata budget with which to spend their time and effort. How are they spending this budget? What are the top metadata categories in use? How…

Social Cards Probably Provide For Better Understanding Of Web Archive Collections
TLDR
It is found that social cards and social cards paired side-by-side with browser thumbnails probably provide better collection understanding than the surrogates currently used by the popular Archive-It web archiving platform.
An Evaluation of Metadata and Dublin Core Use in Web-Based Resources
TLDR
While the data show little change from previous counts of Dublin Core use in website source code as predicted, the majority of randomly-selected and National Library contemporary websites do include at least one metadata tag, and the author concludes that the financial reward of increased findability may be a significant motivator reflected in this increase of metadata use.
The impact of metadata in web resources discovering
TLDR
The study shows no great difference in page ranking between adding meta tags and Dublin Core, and shows that by adding metadata elements to web pages, it raises its rank order, which depends on the quality of the description and the metadata schemes.
Scholarly Context Adrift: Three out of Four URI References Lead to Changed Content
TLDR
The textual content of web at large resources referenced in a vast collection of Science, Technology, and Medicine articles published between 1997 and 2012 has remained stable since the publication of the referencing article but for over 75% of references the content has drifted away from what it was when referenced.
Scholarly Context Not Found: One in Five Articles Suffers from Reference Rot
TLDR
This paper investigates the extent to which reference rot impacts the ability to revisit the web context that surrounds STM articles some time after their publication, and suggests that robust solutions to combat the reference rot problem are required.
The Limits of Web Metadata, and Beyond

On exploiting static and dynamically mined metadata for exploratory web searching

This paper proposes exploitingstatic and dynamically mined metadata for enriching web searching with exploration services by adopting the interaction paradigm of dynamic taxonomies and faceted exploration, which allows the users to restrict their focus gradually using both static and dynamically derived metadata.
