This is a public status page for the Wikipedia @ 20 project, a collection of essays about insights learned during Wikipedia's two decades; it is developed with MIT Press on the PubPub platform. You can watch this page or discuss on the discussion page.

- Jackie Koerner & Joseph Reagle


Most of the ~30 submissions are in, some are in the works. We chose not to wait until all essays were submitted before beginning feedback and revision on pieces that were available. This should allow us to accommodate contributors, public feedback, and the publishing schedule.

  • 2019-06-07: most contributors agreed to a June 7 milestone
    • 24 are on PubPub (also below)
    • 8 are forthcoming
      • Kelly Doyle; Mako Hill; Andrew Lih; Katherine Maher; Iolanda Pensa; Anasuya Sengupta, Siko Bouterse, & Adele Vrana; Aaron Shaw; Jina Valentine & Heather Hart;
  • 2019-06-19: Announcement of PubPub and public feedback
  • 2019-07-19: Public review complete; revisions start
  • 2019-08-30: Contributor revisions due (HARD deadline)
    • At this point, the essays are out of the hands of contributors, unless consulted by an editor.
    • The introduction and revised contributions will go out to anonymous reviewers who will give feedback on the overall project and merits of each revised essay.
    • The editors will confirm selections, make any last minute adjustments, and submit for production.
    • During production, the editors will have an opportunity to review copy-edits.

Ongoing work[edit]

This lists essays undergoing work and those in need of feedback from other contributors. Please give a few folks feedback, especially if they don't have any yet, and invite others to do so as well.

(Editors are not listed as they will review all essays, sometimes visibly, sometimes in private, and sometimes collectively.)
