New peer-reviewed Wikipedia

April 4, 2007

Citizendium is a new peer-reviewed version of Wikipedia, which is now open for use boasting more than 1,100 articles ( is closer to 2 million).  Articles span topics from Jacques Derrida and historical events to basketball players and autism, and some are already well-developed, while others are not much more than placeholders for future contributions.  Citizendium does not support anonymous contribution, and all final decisions are made by a panel of scholars, slowing growth but increasing academic credibility.  The Chronicle of Higher Education (Subscription Required) | Citizendium
