Trust in wikipedia

Teun Lucassen, Jan Maarten Schraagen
2010 Proceedings of the 4th workshop on Information credibility - WICOW '10  
Normally, when considering information trust, the source of information is an important factor. However, because of the open-source nature of Wikipedia articles, their sources remain mostly unknown.  ...  The use of Wikipedia as an information source is becoming increasingly popular. Several studies have shown that its information quality is high.  ...  Information sources Due to the open character of Wikipedia, the true source of most of the information remains unknown.  ...

Transparency and social responsibility issues for Wikipedia

Adele Santana, Donna J. Wood
2009 Ethics and Information Technology  
Wikipedia uses largely transparent writing and editing processes, which aim at providing the user with quality information through a democratic collaborative system.  ...  We analyze the social and ethical consequences of this lack of transparency in Wikipedia for all users, but especially students; we assess the corporate social performance issues involved, and we propose  ...  Because Wikipedia is an ongoing work to which, in principle, anybody can contribute, it differs from a paper-based reference source in important ways.  ...

Factual accuracy and trust in information: The role of expertise

Teun Lucassen, Jan Maarten Schraagen
2011 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
In this article, we propose a new model of trust in information, in which trust judgments are dependent on three user characteristics: source experience, domain expertise, and information skills.  ...  In the past few decades, the task of judging the credibility of information has shifted from trained professionals (e.g., editors) to end users of information (e.g., casual Internet users).  ...  The high number of rationales in which the source of the information was mentioned also is a good indicator of how Wikipedia is trusted blindly by many and carefully avoided by others.  ...

Fine-grained controversy detection in Wikipedia

Siarhei Bykau, Flip Korn, Divesh Srivastava, Yannis Velegrakis
2015 2015 IEEE 31st International Conference on Data Engineering  
Apart from normal updates, there are cases of intentional harmful changes known as vandalism as well as naturally occurring disagreements on topics which don't have an agreed upon viewpoint, known as controversies  ...  Controversy detection is a challenging task, since in the highly dynamic context of user updates, one needs to differentiate among normal updates, vandalisms and actual controversies.  ...  Documents such as news blogs, computer source code and informational manuals increasingly rely on multiple users to contribute content.  ...
