Academic Opinions of Wikipedia and Open Access Will Improve with More Active Involvement - scientific work related to Wikipedia quality published in 2014, written by Lu Xiao.

Overview

Lu Xiao provides a summary of her research on academic perceptions of Wikipedia and open access publishing. Survey results showed that researchers’ lack of experiences with Wikipedia and/or open access journals negatively affected their perceptions of the open access publishing model. Compared to tenure-track faculty members, instructors and ‘Other’ academic professionals are more likely to believe that academic publishing in Wikipedia will be more widely read and more timely. They are less likely to think that Wikipedia has “no advantage” over open-access journals.
