Britannica Fights Back

It took them a while but ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA has written a stinging criticism of the Nature Study that compared Wikipedia favourably to EB.
You can find the BBC report here.
The original Nature study is here and a response is here.
The EB report is here. The title is “Fatally Flawed: Refuting the recent study on encyclopedic accuracy by the journal Nature”. March 2006.
Ths debate will go on for a long time. The recent report comparing Google Scholar favourably to ISI citation tools is another skirmish on the quality front.
Of course, with a well designed library collection and portal access you can have a choice.
