Research Wikipedia-Paradox by Malte Risto

Teun Lucassen and  Malte Risto

Highschool students are not allowed to use it as a source and in the academic scene Wikepedia is also not recommended. GW-PhD student Teun Lucassen (26) is researching the trust the users have in the online encyclopedia and how they value the credibility of the articles. The references with an article normally appear to be very important, but the subjects do not even take a glance at them, according to research with an eyetracker. Malte Risto (26 and currently working at CTS) will graduate 26th of March in the Psychology Department.
