WikiJournal is a chronologically ordered collection of works that have undergone the process of Wikiversity peer review. WikiJournal emphasizes transparency throughout the publication process, from peer review to final version. Thereby, WikiJournal avails for editors to not only summarize existing human knowledge, but also to build upon it. Also, WikiJournal acquires articles containing media (such as images) to enrich Wikipedia articles.

WikiJournal avails for contribution to Wikimedia projects by means of academic publishing, which scholars and other academia may be more familiar with. The other way around, it also assigns standardized reference formats to included works, making it easier for external scientific sources to use and cite Wikimedia works.

The mission of WikiJournal is to receive scholarly works with no cost for the authors, apply quality checks on submissions by peer review, and make accepted works available on the Internet free of charge, in perpetuity.

Anyone may contribute to WikiJournal and edit its pages. Edits to accepted journal articles may be reverted if they are not technical in nature, since changes to main text may require renewed peer review.

For WikiJournal of Medicine, individuals may sign up as official editors or peer reviewers, or apply for editorial board membership at their pages respectively (editors, peer reviewers, editorial board).
