[edit] Abstract

Wikipedia is the world's largest collaboratively edited source of encyclopedic information repository consisting almost 1.5 million articles and more than 90,000 contributors. Although, since its inception on 2001, the numbers of contributors were huge, A study made in 2009 found that members (contributors) may initially contribute to site for pleasure or being motivated by an internal drive to share his knowledge. But latter they are not motivated to edit the related articles so that quality of the articles could be improved [1] [5].In our paper we address above problem in economics perspective. Here we propose a novel scheme to motivate the contributors of Wikipedia with the mechanism design theory that is the most emerging tool at present to address the situation when data is privately held with the agents.
