Arctic Media/Resources Wikipedia
Wikipedia is a multilingual, free-content, online encyclopedia that anyone can edit, intended to encourage sharing and integration of knowledge around the world. Each article is written collaboratively by volunteers who write without pay. Seeing as anyone with Internet access can write and make changes to Wikipedia articles, the Wikipedia community has developed many policies and guidelines to maintain integrity. However, it is not a formal requirement to be familiar with these policies before contributing. Wikipedia is a wonderful platform for the general public to share their unique knowledge and personal experience with the world.
A majority of our ARCBIO species pages will provide a link to Wikipedia articles to allow our users to explore more detailed information. We ask that our users keep in mind that Wikipedia is more a casual resource than academic or scientific. As the encyclopedia is written by volunteers, it cannot be guaranteed that all information is reviewed and correct.
