Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This.

Have Your Teachers Banned Wikipedia? They Must Not Know About This. | Information Science | Scoop.it
Wikipedia's most common sources of information are news outlets, books, and academic archives. So if your teacher has banned Wikipedia, just follow Wikipedia's trail of sources to get to the good stuff. Oh, and don't tell them we sent you.

Hmmm... Worth knowing about. Still can't cite it, but a good place to start for background info.

Sarah Rach-Sovich's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:06 AM

A great starting point - track it back to see where it might have come from.

Lorena Swetnam's curator insight, May 7, 2013 9:43 AM

Teach students and teachers how Wikipedia can be a starting point in the research process, not the final destination.

The Impact of Open Access and Social Media on Scientific Research | Journal of Participatory Medicine | Online Networked Learning | Information Science | Scoop.it

K. Thomas Pickard:

"Traditionally, research papers undergo peer review before publication. Two trends, open access and social media, are changing the peer review process.

E-patients must be aware that traditional peer review applies different criteria and methods than review through social media outlets. Although still developing, these review processes may affect the evaluation of research quality."
