Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology English February 2015 Wikipedia may be the best-developed attempt thus far to gather all human knowledge in one place. Its accomplishments in this regard have made it a point of inquiry for researchers from different fields of knowledge. A decade of research has thrown light on many aspects of the Wikipedia community, its processes, and its content. However, due to the variety of fields inquiring about Wikipedia and the limited synthesis of the extensive research, there is little consensus on many aspects of Wikipedia's content as an encyclopedic collection of human knowledge. This study addresses the issue by systematically reviewing 110 peer-reviewed publications on Wikipedia content, summarizing the current findings, and highlighting the major research trends. Two major streams of research are identified: the quality of Wikipedia content (including comprehensiveness, currency, readability, and reliability) and the size of Wikipedia. Moreover, we present the key research trends in terms of the domains of inquiry, research design, data source, and data gathering methods. This review synthesizes scholarly understanding of Wikipedia content and paves the way for future studies. 0 0
Wikipedia in the eyes of its beholders: A systematic review of scholarly research on Wikipedia readers and readership Chitu Okoli

Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology English December 2014 Hundreds of scholarly studies have investigated various aspects of Wikipedia. Although a number of literature reviews have provided overviews of this vast body of research, none has specifically focused on the readers of Wikipedia and issues concerning its readership. In this systematic literature review, we review 99 studies to synthesize current knowledge regarding the readership of Wikipedia and provide an analysis of research methods employed. The scholarly research has found that Wikipedia is popular not only for lighter topics such as entertainment but also for more serious topics such as health and legal information. Scholars, librarians, and students are common users, and Wikipedia provides a unique opportunity for educating students in digital literacy. We conclude with a summary of key findings, implications for researchers, and implications for the Wikipedia community. 0 1
Estado del arte de la investigación sobre wikis Emilio J. Rodríguez-Posada

University of Cádiz Spanish December 2012 El interés de los investigadores por los wikis, en especial Wikipedia, ha ido en aumento en los últimos años. La primera edición de WikiSym, un simposio sobre wikis, se celebró en 2005 y desde entonces han aparecido multitud de congresos, workshops, conferencias y competiciones en este área. El estudio de los wikis es un campo emergente y prolífico.

Ha habido varios intentos, aunque con escaso éxito, de recopilar toda la literatura sobre wikis. Unas veces el enfoque o la herramienta utilizada eran limitados, otras debido a las dimensiones de la tarea el proyecto era abandonado y al poco tiempo los metadatos bibliográficos se perdían. En este trabajo presentamos WikiPapers, un proyecto colaborativo para recopilar toda la literatura sobre wikis. Se hace uso de MediaWiki y su extensión semántica, ambos conocidos por los investigadores de este campo. Hasta noviembre de 2012 se han recopilado más de 1.700 publicaciones y sus metadatos, además de documentación sobre herramientas y datasets relacionados. Los metadatos son exportables en los formatos BibTeX, RDF, CSV y JSON. Los historiales completos del wiki están disponibles para descargar y facilitar su preservación. El proyecto está abierto a la participación de todo el mundo.

El resto del trabajo se divide de la siguiente manera. En la sección 2 motivamos este trabajo haciendo un repaso a los distintos enfoques utilizados hasta ahora para recopilar toda la literatura sobre wikis, incidiendo en sus ventajas e inconvenientes. En la sección 3 detallamos los objetivos. En la sección 4 definimos algunos términos que servirán para comprender mejor el contenido. En la sección 5 presentamos WikiPapers, cómo funciona y qué pasos se han dado. En la sección 6 hacemos un estado del arte empleando WikiPapers. En la sección 7 repasamos las cuestiones que a día de hoy siguen abiertas o que han tenido poca atención hasta ahora. Finalmente, en la sección 8, terminamos con unas conclusiones y trabajo futuro.

DRE-specific wikis for distributed requirements engineering: A review Peng R.
Lai H.
Proceedings - Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference, APSEC English 2012 Wikis, as typical well-known knowledge management tools that support collaborative work, are adopted by more and more practitioners and researchers as the basis to develop Distributed Requirements Engineering (DRE) tools. Thus, many wikis which are enhanced specially for supporting various activities in Distributed Requirements Engineering (namely DRE-specific wikis) are developed. The main goal of this study is to discover all the available DRE-specific wikis, gain an insight into how and to what degree current DRE-specific wikis can support the DRE activities, and identify the future research directions. We adopt the methodology of systematic literature review to find DRE-specific wikis, analyze the features embodied in them, identify DRE activities supported by them, and cluster the users' feedbacks from their literatures. The results show that 1) distributed requirements elicitation is the most popular DRE activity supported by current DRE-specific wikis, 2) enhanced features are mainly designed for this phase, 3) the well recognized advantage for using DRE-specific wikis is that they can facilitate the collaborative work, and the disadvantages mainly lie in the organization of the content and the usability. Based on the findings of this review, the possible future research directions of DRE-specific wikis have been pointed out, especially in distributed requirements elicitation, negotiation, validation, and management. The importance of cross-over studies and empirical research are both emphasized at the end of the paper. 0 0

English 2012 Wikipedia has become one of the ten most visited sites on the Web, and the world’s leading source of Web reference information. Its rapid success has inspired hundreds of scholars from various disciplines to study its content, communication and community dynamics from various perspectives. This article presents a systematic review of scholarly research on Wikipedia. We describe our detailed, rigorous methodology for identifying over 450 scholarly studies of Wikipedia. We present the WikiLit website (http wikilit dot referata dot com), where most of the papers reviewed here are described in detail. In the major section of this article, we then categorize and summarize the studies. An appendix features an extensive list of resources useful for Wikipedia researchers. 15 1

Proceedings of the 2011 7th International Conference on Next Generation Web Services Practices, NWeSP 2011 English 2011 This paper explores the concept of Web 2.0 and provides an overview of three types of Web 2.0 tools currently used in education today, namely, wikis, blogs and online forums. The paper also presents the results of a systematic literature review on Web 2.0 in education, the findings of which revealed a lack of Web 2.0 pedagogical models in the literature. This paper makes a contribution to knowledge in the area of Web 2.0 use in education by presenting a Web 2.0 pedagogical model to inform educators of how to apply the learning theories associated with Web 2.0 in the classroom. In addition, the paper presents the findings of a teacher training course based on the Web 2.0 pedagogical model taught through the use of an integrated Web 2.0 platform that was carried out as part of a large-scale evaluation of Web2.0 across Europe. 0 0
