A New Expert-Driven Wikipedia Is Born

A new more precise and accurate Wikipedia is born – called Veropedia. The idea behind the project is very simple: only the best articles from Wikipedia are to be collected and preserved for the itternity.

" In order to be included in Veropedia, articles must meet very strict criteria of our own. There can be no cleanup tags, no "citation needed" tags, no disambiguation links, no dead external links, and no fair use images. In addition, each article will be given to recognized academics and experts to review. These experts can either provide their stamp of approval or make suggestions as to how the article can be improved further. ", reads the FAQ section of the website.

Among the founders of Veropedia there are probably librarians, because the new trustworthy Veropedia is the ideal people's reference encyclopedia that can be used by teachers, students and anyone interested in factual information.

For now there are only a few articles to explore. If you are curious, which Wikipedia articles made the cut, click here.
