Information Uniqueness in Wikipedia Articles - scientific work about Wikipedia quality published in 2010, written by Nikos Kirtsis, Sofia Stamou, Paraskevi Tzekou and Nikos Zotos.

Overview

Wikipedia is one of the most successful worldwide collaborative efforts to put together user generated content in a meaningfully organized and intuitive manner. Currently, Wikipedia hosts millions of articles on a variety of topics, supplied by thousands of contributors. A critical factor in Wikipedia's success is its open nature, which enables everyone edit, revise and /or question (via talk pages) the article contents. Considering the phenomenal growth of Wikipedia and the lack of a peer review process for its contents, it becomes evident that both editors and administrators have difficulty in validating its quality on a systematic and coordinated basis. This difficulty has motivated several research works on how to assess the quality of Wikipedia articles. In this paper, authors propose the exploitation of a novel indicator for the Wikipedia articles' quality, namely information uniqueness. In this respect, authors describe a method that captures the information duplication across the article contents in an attempt to infer the amount of distinct information every article communicates. Their approach relies on the intuition that an article offering unique information about its subject is of better quality compared to an article that discusses issues already addressed in several other Wikipedia articles.
