Articles relating to medicine are viewed more than 180 million times per month on Wikipedia, yet fewer than 1 per cent of these have passed a formal peer review process.
The Cochrane-Wikipedia partnership, formalized in 2014, supports the inclusion of relevant evidence within all Wikipedia medical articles, as well as processes to help ensure that medical information included in Wikipedia is of the highest quality and accuracy.
As the third year of our partnership gets underway, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Cochrane-Wikipedia Initiative pages on Wikimedia as the go-to place for all Cochrane-Wikipedia projects and related resources. Find out more about ongoing work, key information on both organizations, and how to get involved - everyone is welcome!
