Saturday Longer Sessions

WikiJournal is a diamond open access journal currently hosted in Wikiversity. It has been publishing peer-reviewed articles since 2014. It is a way of bridging the Wikipedia–academia gap by enabling academics, scholars and professionals to contribute expert knowledge to the Wikimedia movement in the familiar academic publishing format that directly rewards scholars with citable publications.
