An annotated bibliography of publications on wikis. Stress is on AcademicPeerReviewed journals, with other important texts commonly cited for good measure. It may seem from the annotations that most of the existing publications to date aren't particularly good, accurate, meaningful, or insightful, which is probably the case at the moment. Academic discussions of MOOs had an equally unrealistic and mythologizing air to them. Such is the art of rhetoric.

Also, most discussions are lensed through interactions with WikiPedia, and WikiPediaIsNotTypical.
