Semantic Wikipedia - Checking the Premises

Rainer Hammwöhner
2007 Conference on Social Semantic Web  
Enhancing Wikipedia by means of semantic representations seems to be a promising issue. From a formal or technical point of view there are no major obstacles in the way.  ...  Nevertheless, a close look at Wikipedia, its structure and contents reveals that some questions have to be answered in advance.  ...  Cyclic structures conform to Wikipedia's rule set [Wi07a], but not to ISO 2788 since the resulting structure is no hierarchy.  ...

Functional Roles and Career Paths in Wikipedia

Ofer Arazy, Felipe Ortega, Oded Nov, Lisa Yeo, Adam Balila
2015 Proceedings of the 18th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work & Social Computing - CSCW '15  
Recent studies have established that the organizational structure of such communities is not flat; rather, participants can take on a variety of well-defined functional roles.  ...  In contrast, in this paper we empirically study the nature and structure of functional roles within Wikipedia, seeking to validate existing theoretical frameworks.  ...  A second contribution this study makes is in delineating the evolution of Wikipedia's organizational structure.  ...

Auditing Wikipedia's Hyperlinks Network on Polarizing Topics [article]

Cristina Menghini and Aris Anagnostopoulos and Eli Upfal
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Taken together, those findings return a new and intriguing picture of Wikipedia's network structural influence on polarizing issues' exploration.  ...  Moreover, on average, the probability that the networks nudge users to remain in a knowledge bubble is up to an order of magnitude higher than that of exploring pages of contrasting subjects.  ...  Particularly, only the 23.6% and 33.5% of traffic to evolution and racism is generated by the internal Wikipedia's E E E E Ex x x x xt t t t te e e e er r r r rn n n n na a a a al l l l l I I I I In n  ...

The Evolution of Wikipedia's Norm Network

Bradi Heaberlin, Simon DeDeo
2016 Future Internet  
Taken together, these results suggest that the evolution of Wikipedia's norm network is akin to bureaucratic systems that predate the information age.  ...  Despite Wikipedia's reputation for ad hoc governance, we find that its normative evolution is highly conservative.  ...  Our findings are consistent with the "iron law" of oligarchy in peer-production systems; they also complement accounts of gradual decentralization in Wikipedia's governance structure.  ...
