Scholarpedia is not a case in point because it is not a Wiki. As you
described it, Scholarpedia lacks collaborative writing.

We have discussed recently whether to add Wikitravel/Wikivoyage to the
Wikimedia family of wikis. This is the kind of wikis I think of when
it comes to external links. At least Wikivoyage is often rather good.
