‘It’s against all principles of scientific reporting’: Thousands of medical papers cite Wikipedia, study says
Tom Blackwell, National Post, March 18, 2014
This alarmist "the world is ending" headline is typical of the National Post, but the sentiment against citing Wikipedia is far more widespread. So what's the issue?

Screenshot-2018-4-23 The GardianDo academics need a journal that allows them to publish papers anonymously? The proposed Journal of Controversial Ideas “would enable people whose ideas might get them in trouble either with the left or with the right or with their own university administration, to publish under a pseudonym,” suggested Jeff McMahan, professor of moral philosophy at Oxford University and a driving force behind the project.
