[Wir danken Christian Pentzold für die Erlaubnis, aus seiner Zusammenfassung der CPOV-Tagung eine längere Passage übernehmen zu dürfen! P.H.]

Peter Haber, researcher at the seminar for general modern history, University of Basel, presented some initial results from a research seminar he gave at the University of Vienna which was titled: Source critique in Wikipedia. A research report. His presentation dealt with the online encyclopedia from a historiographic point of view. The general direction of the academic ‘experiment‘ addressed the question how Wikipedia functions with a special focus on articles on historic and historical subjects.
