The need to assess the trustworthiness of a piece of information has become a prevalent issue due to web vandalism and the openness of platforms such as wikis. In this paper we introduce the notion of contextual accountability: Holding the author of a given statement accountable by deriving a path from the statement to the author’s credentials. We present our own trust vector model as a combination of the assessment of these credentials covering two aspects; knowledgeability and social acceptance. This model is put to the test using two datasets and the results are presented and discussed.
