WikiJournal User Group
Wikipedia-integrated • Public peer review • Libre open access

WikiJournal User Group is a publishing group of open-access, free-to-publish, Wikipedia-integrated academic journals. <seo title=" Wikiversity Journal User Group, WikiJournal Free to publish, Open access, Open-access, Non-profit, online journal, Public peer review "/>

Who is an editor?

WikiJournal is set up such that anyone can contribute. Minor edits, such as formatting, copyediting and minor wording edits may be done by anyone. Edits that change the meaning of the article require peer review, and should instead be added at the Discuss-page of an article before triggering a new round of academic peer review.

In a practical sense, the editors of the journal are organised into two groups:

  1. The editorial board handles any confidential article submissions, and has final responsibility for ensuring that robust academic peer review is performed in a timely manner. Information about editorial board responsibilities can be found here. If you are interested in joining the editorial board, you can apply at the editorial board page of each journal, and all previous applications can be viewed here.
  2. The associate editors help in contacting prospective peer reviewers, formatting accepted manuscripts, and integrating suitable material into Wikipedia. They can also vote in board elections. Information about associate editor responsibilities can be found here. If you are interested in joining as an associate editor, you can apply at the associate editor page of each journal, and all previous applications can be viewed here.
