Wikipedia, meet RNA. Anyone submitting to a section of the journal RNA
Biology will, in the future, be required to also submit a Wikipedia
page that summarizes the work. The journal will then peer review the
page before publishing it in Wikipedia.

The initiative is a collaboration between the journal and the RNA
family database (Rfam) consortium led by the UK Wellcome Trust Sanger
Institute in Hinxton. "The novelty is that for the first time it
creates a link between Wikipedia and traditional journal publishing,
with its peer-review element," says Alex Bateman, who co-heads the
Rfam database. The aim, Bateman says, is to boost the quality of the
scientific content on Wikipedia while using the entries to update the
Sanger database.
