Chemistry-related Peer-review

  • Add things here, or make a new cat.


Please focus your effort on articles on the worklist, as these have been identified as being key articles in chemistry. (Still unofficial)

Scientific Peer Review

Peer review at this project is no longer active and scientific articles should be directed to the general Wikipedia peer review. Reviews of articles that were completed are archived here.


As noted at Talk:Environmental chemistry please do any work in consensus with other editors. Removing large sections leaving bare headings is not the right way to proceed.  Velella  Velella Talk   08:50, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

A refereed journal on Wikiversity

I think I posted this on an archived discussion and will look for a better place to post--Guy vandegrift (talk) 09:49, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

According to this survey, the prime disincentive against making scholarly contributions to Wikipedia is that it will not advance careers. Wikiversity:First Journal of Science will be a peer-reviewed journal that should alleviate this problem for recent college graduates who are not expected to have published in the established scholarly journals.

The word "First" in the title is intended to suggest that we need more journals like this. The Wikiversity:First Journal of Science was patterned after the Wikiversity Journal of Medicine, but will have a somewhat more informal flavor, consistent with this new journal's intent to focus on teaching at the undergraduate college level. Wikiversity:First Journal of Science will attribute with bylines that list usernames only, in contrast with the use of real names by the Wikiversity Journal of Medicine

Another unique feature of Wikiversity:First Journal of Science is that edited versions of Wikipedia articles are welcome, and are presented as Wikipedia articles on the Wikiversity journal via permalinks to the history of Wikipedia articles. This is currently accomplished in a rather awkward fashion, by moving the Wikipedia article into the editor's user space, and after proper attribution, deleting all that extraneous prose that Wikipedia articles tend to acquire. An example of this shown in one of the three "pseudo-articles" that were used to create a mockup issue. Of the three "pseudo-articles" in this mockup, I consider only one to be suitable for publication. It is Wikipedia's Introduction to quantum mechanics. Note how the logo was inserted into the "pseudo-accepted" version without permission of the article's current editors. In other words, all of Wikipedia's 5 million articles are candidates for publication in this journal, and in a manner of speaking, have already effectively submitted their manuscripts to Wikiversity:First Journal of Science for review--Guy vandegrift (talk) 05:24, 14 January 2016 (UTC)

Over the next few weeks, I intend to contribute significantly to Environmental chemistry and I'd love to have one or two others peeking in from time to time to throw in some comments/suggestions or additions as well. Related topics I'll undoubtedly contribute too, just by being in that subject alot are Chemical oceanography and maybe Green Chemistry, although I know GC is pretty well complete so I probably won't add much there. My interest in this area is from my being a senior majoring in chemistry with an environmental concentration. Thanks!
