Abstract

Wikipedia is a free open-source Internet encyclopedia that anyone can edit, and Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger founded this multilingual collaborative encyclopedia in 2001. The Wikipedia encyclopedia is written and edited by a worldwide community of unpaid volunteers, and there is no central organization controlling editing in contrast to other encyclopedias such as Encyclopedia Britannica.
