Assessing information quality of a community-based encyclopedia is a 2005 conference paper written in English by Besiki Stvilia, Michael B. Twidale, Linda C. Smith, Les Gasser and published in Proceedings of the International Conference on Information Quality.
Effective information quality analysis needs powerful yet easy ways to obtain metrics. The English version of Wikipedia provides an extremely interesting yet challenging case for the study of Information Quality dynamics at both macro and micro levels. We propose seven IQ metrics which can be evaluated automatically and test the set on a representative sample of Wikipedia content. The methodology of the metrics construction and the results of tests, along with a number of statistical characterizations of Wikipedia articles, their content construction, process metadata and social context are reported.
