Assessing the trustworthiness of information found on the Web is challenging because of two factors. First, there is a little control over publishing quality. Second, Web users have little information available on which to base judgement of the trustworthiness of Web information while they are interacting with it. This work addresses this problem by collecting and presenting metadata about authority, currency,accuracy and relevance to evaluate the trustworthiness of Web information during information seeking processes. In this poster, we propose the HETWIN application framework and present a design as a prototype tool that employs this framework for academic publications
