The WikiJournal User Group runs a set of peer reviewed academic
that have the
unique feature of being highly Wikipedia integrated. Papers can include links to Wikipedia
pages, figures are all uploaded to Commons, and suitable material (or even whole articles)
can be copied over to Wikipedia. In fact, Wikipedia pages have even been submitted to the
journals for peer review.
The concept is to couple the rigour of academic peer review with the extreme reach of the
wiki ecosystem. This improves the accuracy of the encyclopedia and its sister projects,
and rewards authors with citable, indexed publications. Authors are treated the same
whether they are professors or students, with a focus on the article’s accuracy and
Peer reviews are public
and 75% of reviewers agree to have their identities open.
Article formats are flexible and have included:
· Broad review article that also becomes a Wikipedia page
· Existing Wikipedia page submitted for peer review
· Focused review articles that have images or text added to Wikipedia pages
· Technical reviews that can accompany a Wikipedia page
· Stand-alone research articles (example<https://doi.org/10.15347/wjm/2019.007>
