Implementing the CORE Recommender in Strathprints: a “whitehat” improvement to promote user interaction – CORE's bookmarks 2017-10-31


"When the CORE Recommender is deployed a repository user will find that as they are viewing an article or abstract page within the repository, they will be presented with recommendations for other related research outputs, all mined from CORE."

"We discovered that the average time users spent on Strathprints upon arrival increased considerably. 01:29 up from 00:58 – so users typically spent 58% longer on Strathprints, strongly indicative that improvements to the user interface and especially the introduction of the CORE Recommender, was enough to persuade users to defer their bounce and instead read content, or explore alternative content within the CORE Recommender."
