A Wikipedia Literature Review is a publication by Owen S. Martin.

[edit] Abstract

This paper was originally designed as a literature review for a doctoral dissertation focusing on Wikipedia. This exposition gives the structure of Wikipedia and the latest trends in Wikipedia research.

[edit] Research questions

"This literature review will come in several discrete steps. First, the nature of Wikipedia must be described and catalogued, so that mathematical rigor and statistical integrity can be applied to it. Second, the history of the existing statistical technologies will be presented, for reference to the changes we apply for this problem."
