In this paper, we propose a framework that combines aspects of user role modeling and user-interface features with retrieval and recommender systems components. The framework is based on emergent themes identified from participants feedback in a user evaluation study conducted with a prototype assistive system. 119 researchers participated in the study for evaluating the prototype system that provides recommendations for two literature review and one manuscript writing tasks.
