== Key details about this literature review ==
* We describe the methodology in detail in a [ working paper]; it is currently very rough and incomplete, but should be updated by May 2012.
* We include '''only research about [ Wikipedia]''', not about any other [ wiki] or any other [ Wikimedia Foundation project].
* We focused mainly on peer-reviewed journal articles (over 300340) and PhD dissertations (over 2530), and have systematically sought to include these. It is a huge project, and we had to draw a limit to what we would mainly focus on.* We have identified over 1,500 conference papers which we [[List of conference papers|list with their abstracts]]. However, in our detailed analysis we have included only 70 100 or so of the most highly-cited conference papers. Because of our limited time and resources, unfortunately we were unable to analyze more than that in detail. However, we can certainly do detailed analysis of any important conference papers that we left out--please add them or point them outto us!
* We do not include any items published after June 2011, after which the [ Wikimedia Research Newsletter] was formally inaugurated; we're letting them pick up from where we stop.
* The wiki contains [[Special:Statistics|{{NUMBEROFARTICLES}}]] pages, including publications and authors.
