Credibility of Wikipedia

MGT/521

The Credibility of Wikipedia

Wikipedia is an open source online encyclopedia containing over three million articles to date.  There has been debate over the credibility of Wikipedia’s content since its creation by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger back in 2000.  The value of the content on the now famous site has been banned by professors and various universities and praised by the others. 

Openness

“Wikipedia is written collaboratively by largely anonymous Internet volunteers who write without pay.  Anyone with Internet access can write and make changes to Wikipedia articles…” (Wikipedia, 2011, para. 1.)  Since Wikipedia is an open source, meaning that person with a modem and a computer can contribute to the website’s content, leaves a gaping hole as to the credibility of the website’s information.  If someone with little to no expertise on a subject can add what they feel is credible information to an article on the site who are we to know as the reader if this information is accurate or completely made up?

Self Governing

“The Wikipedia community is largely self-organising, so that anyone may build a reputation as a competent editor and become involved in any role he/she may choose, subject to peer approval. Individuals often will choose to become involved in specialised tasks, such as reviewing articles at others' request, watching current edits for vandalism, watching newly created articles for quality control purposes, or similar roles.”  (Wikipedia, 2011, para. 40.)  Another issue with the site is that its editorial staff is a group of volunteers which self govern themselves without pay.  Again anyone who wished to act and work as an editor for the site can.  Meaning, that the same people with who could have absolutely no scholarly claim or repertoire can not only contribute to the website’s information but they can also edit and control that information.
