The navigation adaptation is the solution that supports the user during his interaction with the system. In the literature, several works that deal with the navigation adaptation are proposed. They guide the user from a document to another, provide the user with a set of links leading to the pertinent documents, or apply on simple links the suitable adaptive navigation technologies. In this paper, we contribute to propose a method that identifies the best navigation path between semi-structured result documents according to the user’s needs, history and device.
