Measuring Wikipedia
Abstract Wikipedia, an international project that uWikipedia, an international project that uses Wiki software to collaboratively create an encyclopaedia, is becoming more and more popular. Everyone can directly edit articles and every edit is recorded. The [[version history]] of all articles is freely available and allows a multitude of examinations. This paper gives an overview on Wikipedia research. Wikipedia's fundamental components, i.e. [[articles]], [[authors]], [[edits]], and [[links]], as well as content and [[quality]] are analysed. Possibilities of research are explored including examples and first results. Several characteristics that are found in Wikipedia, such as [[exponential growth]] and [[scale-free networks]] are already known in other context. However the Wiki architecture also possesses some intrinsic specialties. General trends are measured that are typical for all Wikipedias but vary between languages in detail.dias but vary between languages in detail.
