Wikiversity Journal is a chronologically ordered collection of works that have undergone the process of Wikiversity peer review. Wikiversity Journal emphasizes transparency throughout the publication process, from peer review to final version. Thereby, Wikiversity Journal avails for editors to not only summarize existing human knowledge, but also to build upon it. Wikiversity Journal should basically function as a repository of evidence, similarly to the way Wikidata functions as a repository of data for Wikimedia projects. Also, Wikiversity Journal acquires articles containing media (such as images) to enrich Wikipedia articles.
Wikiversity Journal avails for contribution to Wikimedia projects by means of academic publishing, which scholars and other academia may be more familiar with. The other way around, it also assigns standardized reference formats to included works, making it easier for external scientific sources to use and cite Wikimedia works.
Wikiversity Journal offers both peer review and publication for free.
