WIKIPEDIA: PROS & CONS

Pros Cons
Worlds largest encyclopedia with millions of entries on obscure topics Articles are not edited or peer-reviewed
Great place to start & identify keywords

Many instructors will not allow Wikipedia citations because they are not edited or reviewed

Updated regularly, sometimes by the second Articles get vandalized for ideological reasons or just for fun
Can include excellent references & external links Can be skewed or biased -- based on authors interests, beliefs, opinions
Anyone can edit Wikipedia -- the people's encyclopedia! Anyone can edit Wikipedia -- no one checks their credentials or agendas
