Wikis as Information Sources

Nature magazine carried out an expert-led

investigation of Wikipedia comparing it to

Britannica.

“The exercise revealed numerous errors in

both encyclopedias, but among 42 entries

tested, the difference in accuracy was not

particularly great: the average science entry

in Wikipedia contained around four

inaccuracies; Britannica, about three.”

(Giles, 2005, 1)

University of Buffalo professor Alex Havelis

created 13 errors on various posts of

Wikipedia. All were fixed within a couple of

hours.

During the tsunami, Wikipedia was called

“the most comprehensive source

on the web.”
