|Wikipedia risks||Commun. ACM||English||2005||Several risks related to Wikipedia, a venerable form of knowledge organization and dissemination are presented. Wikipedia does not confirm the accuracy of the information presented by them, and is unable to tell the motives of the contributors to an article. It is difficult to determine how qualified an article's contributors are, the revision histories often identify them by pseudonyms, making it difficult to check credentials and sources. Many articles in the Wikipedia do not cite independent sources. Wikipedia contains no formal peer review process for fact-checking, and the editors themselves might not be well versed in the topics they write about. The Wikipedia cannot attain the status of a true encyclopedia without more formal content-inclusion and expert review procedures.||0||8|
