Evaluating authoritative sources using social networks: an insight from Wikipedia Wikipedia
Social Networks
Online Information Review English 2006 Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present an approach to evaluating contributions in collaborative authoring environments and in particular wikis using social network measures.

Design / methodology / approach: A social network model for wikipedia has been constructed and metrics of importance such as centrality have been defined. Data have been gathered from articles belonging to the same topic using a web crawler in order to evaluate the outcome of the social network measures in the articles.

Originality / Value: This work tries to develop a network approach to the evaluation of wiki contributions and approaches the problem of quality of wikipedia content from a social network point of view.

Practical Implications: We believe that the approach presented here could be used to improve the authoritativeness of content found in Wikipedia and similar sources.
