Abstract

We propose a method to evaluate the contributions of each participant to the development of a document in a collaborative environment. The algorithm proceeds ex post, by analyzing the different steps that led to the final (assumed satisfying) version of the document. Such an evaluation might be considered as a trust or reputation note, and therefore can be used as an input for trust mechanisms aimed at incentivizing users to contribute efficiently.
