Step 1: Creation

To convert a existing Wikipedia article to a preprint, see these guidelines.
For help using the 'VisualEditor' writing interface, see this short tutorial series.

Step 2: Submission
A) You can submit a preprint to one of the WikiJournals via this WikiJournal submission form
B) Alternatively, you can submit a preprint to any other preprint-compatible journal via their website (see also, SHERPA/RoMEO)

WikiJournal Processing

  1. Manuscript submitted
  2. Authors may specify a journal, or allow editorial boards to decide which is most suitable (approx. 1 week)
  3. Expert peer reviewers contacted by editorial board or associate editors for assessment of article (approx. 2 months)
    • To speed up the process, authors may suggest peer reviewers that editors may invite
    • Reviewers recommend: Accept / Revise / Decline
    • Journal editors and peer reviewers will make recommendations and direct wording suggestions but authors have final choice over wording
    • Peer review is public, but reviewers may choose to be anonymous
  4. Authors address reviewer comments if applicable
  5. Publication of stable PDF and editable Wiki page, as well as all reviewer and editor comments.
    • To speed up the process, authors are welcome to create PDF files of their work themselves, according to formatting guidelines for PDF files (PDFs are emailed to your handling editor for review)
    • Multilingual authors are welcome to submit translations of accepted articles in any supported language
  6. Suitable material is integrated into Wikipedia, either by authors or Wikipedia editors
  7. Post-publication review can occur at any time
    • Authors should add their articles to their watchlists to be notified or comments
    • Authors are encouraged, but not required, to discuss any criticism and can edit or update the submission if appropriate
  8. Post-publication edits can occur at any time
    • Authors may make minor edits to the online version, but the PDF will not be updated
    • Authors may propose major edits, improvements, or edits. This will trigger a new round of peer review (of the changes only) and a new PDF version
