Neuroscience Wikipedia Initiative

August 1, 2009

The Society for Neuroscience addresses educators’ concerns about the quality of content on Wikipedia with its Neuroscience Wikipedia Initiative.  The Initiative expands Wikipedia’s neuroscience content by encouraging Society for Neuroscience members to edit and contribute. 

This initivative provides a ideal model for other professional organizations to engage in educational advocacy and support open educational resource development.  View the Neuroscience WikiProject to find out how to use a collaboration area and open group of editors to improve Wikipedia’s coverage of a particular topic.
