APS Wikipedia Initiative for coverage of psychological science

In December 2010, the president of the Association for Psychological Science (APS) launched a Wikipedia Initiative to encourage APS members and their students to become active participants in Wikipedia and to improve its coverage of psychological science: “It is clear that *Wikipedia* is the general public’s primary source of expert knowledge, including psychological science. Unfortunately, the quality of information about psychological science in *Wikipedia* is uneven and for many of our most central theories, methods and discoveries it says not much that is of interest or importance. To change this state of affairs I am announcing the APS *Wikipedia* Initiative (APSWI) http://www.psychologicalscience.org/index.php/members/aps-wikipedia-initiative which is aimed at improving the state of knowledge about the discipline.”
