Linking and thinking: The use of typed informational relationships in aid of semantic navigation

Richard Kopak, Chia-Ning Chiang
2007 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
The goal is to enable readers to create functionally meaningful relationships between journal articles with the outcome of enhancing later, semantic based, navigation through the collection as a whole.  ...  Functional link typing is one method that has been proposed to address this challenge with the consequent action of increasing global coherence within the hypertext and facilitating increased comprehension  ...  Since navigation through hypertext is essentially navigation through semantic space, it has as its purpose the "endpoint of comprehension" (1997, p. 101) , and thus directly involves movement through  ...

The Effect of Structural Cues on User Comprehension, Navigational Behavior, and Perceptions

Kathryn A. Mobrand, Edward Galore, Elisabeth Cuddihy, Jan H. Spyridakis
2007 2007 IEEE International Professional Communication Conference  
We found that text previews with embedded links to related pages (children nodes) enhance comprehension and discourage site exploration.  ...  And, we found that navigational tab menus encourage site exploration and enhance user perceptions.  ...  While these aids can assist readers in moving through the hypertext space, they may or may not function effectively as cues to aid comprehension.  ...
