“Every professor has always told me that Wikipedia is not a valid source,” he said. “I don’t even really look at it — it’s just too tempting.” AYaleUniversityprofessor was quoted as saying. Behan the author of the information on “emysphilia said that he did more than just write, but created several entries relating to the same fake fetish. He also admitted to having created more information on various issues on Wikipedia (June 2007).
Therefore it well clear that the use of wikipedia is not a guaranteed resource, and in real sense it is not an acknowledged citation for references within academic circles. But despite this it still remains a useful resource for students and others who have to make their research from internet based sites.
