Make WP scientific
One of the ways is to make WP scientific. WP has a lot of info, with refs to scientific sources, but WP itself is not scientific. When it gets to the point in some research or any paper of serious level, like where did you get this info from, give the proof, and you give the link to WP page, that's not going to work, because this source is not scientific, not absolute. See Japan, a generator of ideas, where the half resort to scientific sources and not use WP, because WP is not excepted as a source for serious info, but just for surfacial familiarization.
