Assuming a large number of authors on Citizendium. Use the export
function there to provide the file in a useful format and reactivate
the import function on en to export it (at a pinch is should be
possible to put together a script that can grab the relevant
information and turn it into a file suitable for import to wikipedia
without having to use the export function).

For smaller numbers of authors there are workarounds.

Depends on the context.
