This paper studies the behavioural processes involved in the decision-making process when detecting the genre of Wikipedia pages. We analysed qualitative data collected from a study of Wikipedia search behaviour to evaluate the importance of textual features in these decision-making processes. We discuss how and why genre should be included in current information models, including the decision-making processes. We redefine a literary document selection model to demonstrate the decision-making processes and by contrasting the document information elements, criteria, and values by re-framing it in the context of genres within the Wikipedia domain.
