WikiChecks started out so I didn’t have to search for my reviews, then grew when I realized it might be of use to the whole community. I am still writing the software, but it is usable. I need help populating it with reviews, documents and web design. If you are slick with a digital camera, email any images. I thought of calling it McIntyre’s Jack Russell Terrier but few would have got the reference. It will be hosted on the landshape server for the moment, but I have registered the domain names wikichecks.org and wikichecks.com also. Below is from the FAQ:
All documents can benefit from independent checks. Whether you have a scientific article or document you would like checked, or would like one of your own torn apart (rationally) prior to publication, the goal of WikiChecks is to bring you together with someone who can add this value.
To explore the way the site works, follow the tabs at the top of this page.
If you have a document you want checked, you can add it to the site.
Registered users submit a document for checking (â†’ Documents). This includes a link to the document, and information on the type of checks required or desirable to perform. You can also contact me with the link or document and I will add it for you.
A some point, another user will enter a review of that document (â†’ Reviews). The reviews are also available for user comment, the same as a blog. The review includes some scores that are listed next to the review. Checkers might then determine if the data agree with the conclusions, the sources were accurately quoted, whether the correct statistical tests were performed, and whether they were statistically significant (see How to Check). After sufficient checks with satisfactory ratings, the review will be closed.
After a checker has completed a number of reviews they can become an expert checker. For checkers who have gained a reputation, potential clients can evaluate your work, specialization and experience, and in the near future, you can expect to earn money for your services.
