2014 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Results show that participants made query abandonment decisions based on the properties of search results, of queries and of search tasks.  ...  Past research on search stopping behavior has primarily focused on the stopping behavior that takes place at the conclusion of an information-seeking task.  ...  CONCLUSION AND IMPLICATIONS Our work investigated two types of search stopping behavior, query abandonment and task stopping, using assigned search tasks in a controlled laboratory environment.  ...
