Wikipedia is an open-source encyclopedia, built collaboratively by a large community of web editors. The success of Wikipedia as one of the most important sources of information available today still challenges existing models of content creation. Despite the fact that the term ‘curation’ is not commonly addressed by Wikipedia’s contributors, the task of digital curation is the central activity of Wikipedia editors, who have the responsibility for information quality standards.

Wikipedia, is already widely used as a collaborative environment inside organizations5.
The investigation of the collaboration dynamics behind Wikipedia highlights important features and good practices which can be applied to different organizations. Our analysis focuses on the curation perspective and covers two important dimensions: social organization and artifacts, tools & processes for cooperative work coordination. These are key enablers that support the creation of high quality information products in Wikipedia’s decentralized environment.
