Scientific Journal to Authors: Publish in Wikipedia or Perish – ReadWriteWeb.

RNA Biology has a new requirement to authors who are accepted in their journal. Everyone must write a short article for Wikipedia that summarizes the findings of the article! The Wikipedia articles are also going to be reviewed by the journal. And also, after you publish the article on Wikipedia, anyone can edit it! It’s really an interesting idea, but I’m not sure whether Wikipedia is going to be able to handle hundreds of articles about RNA biology. Is it going to work out? That’s what remains to be seen.
