La communauté comme auteur et éditeur : l'exemple de Wikipédia

Abstract : All web 2.0 technologies place the user at the heart of the creation of digital content while enhancing a collective dynamics. These changes challenge the traditional publishing model, without offering clear representations of the production and validation methods being used.
With the example of Wikipedia, we try to understand the mechanisms of editorial control, then we question the forms of expertise and the author's faces.
We will see how the tools and mechanisms that underlie the activity are part of a growing mature movement and how the collaborative environment fosters the personal creative energies by focusing on critical action and explicit reflexivity.
These features are consistent with a significant "professionalization", combining diversification and specialization of the contributions and allowing the emergence of relatively traditional roles.
These aspects tend to design a genuine publishing model, making Wikipedia a collaborative project but also an true encyclopedia. These results need however further research to be confirmed.
