Improvements of Radiopaedia, the wiki of radiology
I’ve already written about Radiopaedia.org, a wiki dedicated to radiology. I still believe physicians like Frank Gaillard change medicine by making it more accessible for experts and laypeople as well. For years, I’ve been longing for a system in Wikipedia that Frank has just implemented in Radiopaedia: section editors.
I think it’s a good idea to have editors (credentialed professional) who are responsible for specific sections or projects. I know Citizendum works like that, but if we could merge the section editor idea with the power of the mass of laypeople, then we could create the ideal wiki. Here is the example of Radiopaedia:
Radiopaedia editors are appointed for a minimum of 6 months, and are responsible for not only contributing content, but also for moderating discussion and overseeing the development of their section. This is an appointment suitable for Curriculum Vitae under research / publications. If you are interested in applying or just want more information please download the following PDF (click here).
