  • Narrate your plan in details:

The Wikimedia movement has successfully harnessed the power of the masses contributing collaboratively. However, academicians still are sceptical about Wikipedia. Its time to bridge the gap. This is already happening in small niches. ILAE Wikipedia Project is one. WikiJournal of Medicine is another. But these are not the only ones. The list is growing. There is scope to do it more systematically. The result will greatly enhance the free knowledge movement. As a member and driver of these communities I can lay down a structure about how to get this done.
