Size matters: Word count as a measure of quality on Wikipedia is a 2008 conference paper written in English by Blumenstock J.E. and published in Proceeding of the 17th International Conference on World Wide Web 2008, WWW'08.

[edit] Abstract

Wikipedia, "the free encyclopedia", now contains over two million English articles, and is widely regarded as a high-quality, authoritative encyclopedia. Some Wikipedia articles, however, are of questionable quality, and it is not always apparent to the visitor which articles are good and which are bad. We propose a simple metric - word count - for measuring article quality. In spite of its striking simplicity, we show that this metric significantly outperforms the more complex methods described in related work.
