I find this paper quite an interesting read:
*A Latent Space Analysis of Editor Lifecycles in Wikipedia *
* Xiangju Qin, Derek Greene, Pádraig Cunningham*
In it, the authors suggest that Wikipedians who are focused tend to stay
longer editing the encyclopedia and they’ve actually shown that
understanding patterns of change in user behavior can be of practical
importance for community management and maintenance.
Regrettably, its filled with heavy jargon and statistical models but it
might just be useful to those working on the Editor Retention Program?
