This page is a Bibliography of scientific publications and sources about wikis in general and Wikipedia in particular. Feel free to add and modify publications, if the publication is

  • scholarly or scientifically relevant (no journalistic articles)
  • dedicated to Wikis or Wikipedia (no articles that only mention Wikis)
  • cited correctly (at least with author, title, date and formatted uniformly)
  • sorted and noted meaningfully (think about where to put it and add a description or put it into the "unsorted"-section)

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to engage in a thought experiment, exploring the use of Wikipedia or similar content-malleable systems for the review and dissemination of academic knowledge. By looking at other sources, the paper considers the current state of the academic peer-review process, discusses Wikipedia and reflects on dynamic content creation and management applications currently in use in academia. The traditional peer review process must be updated to match the rapid creation and diffusion of knowledge that characterizes the 21st century. The Wikipedia concept is a potential model for more rapid and reliable dissemination of scholarly knowledge. The implications of such a concept would have a dramatic effect on the academic community. This paper promotes a radical idea for changing the methods by which academic knowledge is both constructed and disseminated.

In der Arbeit werden zunächst ökonomische und politische Brisanz und Bedeutung der Themen "Wissen" und "Bildung" diskutiert. Es folgen Überlegungen, Thesen und Denkansätze, die das Augenmerk auf die Rolle von Experten, die Probleme beim schulischen und universitären Lernen und Lehren und die Möglichkeiten von Computer und Internet lenken. Das Potential von Letzterem wird vor allem anhand der nline-Enzyklopädie „Wikipedia“ erörtert. So genannte "Wikis" (= Internet-Texte, die von jedermann online editiert und erweitert werden können) eröffnen die Möglichkeit, dass viele Personen autonom – d.h. ohne die Notwendigkeit zentraler Organisation – eine kontinuierlich wachsende Wissensbasis erschaffen können. Die riesige Zahl an Artikeln und die steigende Bekanntheit und Beliebtheit bei den Nutzern zeigt, dass das Konzept funktioniert. Allerdings zeigt eine genauere Analyse, dass es von einer Enzyklopädie bis zu einer "idealen" virtuellen Lernumgebung noch ein großer Schritt ist. -- gekürzt aus der Zusammenfassung der Autor
