They have a wiki:


> Abstract:
> Wikipedia has become one of the ten most visited sites on the Web, and
> the world’s leading source of Web reference information. Its rapid
> success has inspired hundreds of scholars from various disciplines to
> study its content, communication and community dynamics from various
> perspectives. This article presents a protocol for conducting a
> systematic mapping (a broad-based literature review) of scholarly
> research on Wikipedia. The purpose of this review is to analyze
> particular trends in research and offer the basic groundwork for future
> studies. We identify what research has been conducted; what research
> questions have been asked, and which have been answered and which remain
> unanswered; and what theories and methodologies have been employed to
> study Wikipedia. This protocol follows the systematic literature review
> methodology to conduct a systematic mapping study. The review process is
> work in progress, and has thus far identified over 2,000 studies.
> This working paper is a rough first draft combining three different
> working papers by the authors. In its current form, it mainly serves as a
> placeholder to provide a source for attribution for the website, which
> presents the papers analyzed in the systematic part of this review.
