The zeroth issue of the WikiJournal of Science is for demonstration purposes. None of its articles have been subject to peer review. They were generated in 2016 under the name "Second Journal of Science". They have subsequently all been added as pre-prints to the list of articles awaiting reviewer.
Wikiversity's policy of permitting forking into two slightly different articles has led to two slightly different version. In October 2014, an editor rendered it too advanced for its intended use by adding this section to the other version (i.e., the one not posted here). As is common on Wikiversity, the project was forked into two parallel pages (at present, neither version is ready to be accepted by this journal). Also, this practice of routinely forking articles and accepting student submissions in mainspace makes Wikiversity an ideal host for journals like this and Wikiversity Journal of Medicine. To a limited degree, POV is tolerated here.
This Wikipedia article seems to have more focus than most. It also demonstrates how articles can be included in this journal without the permission or even knowledge of its authors, so that we effectively already have 5 million submitted manuscripts!. The version "accepted" by this journal features the journal's logo and link to this abstract, which was added and then immediately removed.
Many Wikipedia articles are of good quality but are almost never designed for a specific college course. A further abridged "Timeline of quantum mechanics" was reduced by some 50 % and returned to "w:User:Guy_vandegrift/Timeline of quantum mechanics (abridged)." This Timeline of quantum mechanics (abridged) shows some of the key steps in the development of quantum mechanics, quantum field theories and quantum chemistry that occurred before the end of World War II.
When did Modern Physics begin? In 1834 Hamilton could have derived the Schrödinger equation if he had any experimental evidence that particles were also waves. The word "eikonal" comes from an ancient Greek word that we know as "icon", which means "image". Hamilton was working on optics when made this approximation in an attempt to model the behavior of light as it passes through a medium in which the index of refraction varies smoothly. This is an alternate derivation of what physics majors know as the Ehrenfest theorem, restricted to one-dimension so that a very simple proof can be constructed.
This unusually focused Wikipedia article emphasizes optical and radio spectroscopy. It shows how the temperature, chemical composition, and motion are deduced for stars and interstellar nebulae, galaxies, as well as objects within our solar system.
The two bright stars are Alpha Centauri (left) and Beta Centauri (right). The faint red star in the center of the red circle is Proxima Centauri. The reader needs to open the image (by "open in new tab") in order to even see Proxima Centauri, which is slightly closer to Earth than the other two. The name "alpha" tells us that it is the brightest star (as seen from Earth) in the constellation Centaurus.
