Title: Internet Searching and other Research Challenges: Publish or Perish?
Authors: Weideman, Melius 
Keywords: Internet searching;Research;Research challenges;World Wide Web;Publish or perish
Issue Date: 2008
Abstract: The definition of "Publish or Perish" which follows is taken from Wikipedia, and in referring to it I open myself up for criticism from some academics. One school of thought is that Wikipedia, and other mass collaboration initiatives, are of an inferior quality and should never be cited. Fortunately, this address will not be pear reviewed for journal publication, so I have chosen to follow the second school of thought: use Wikipedia for basic definitions when it suits you, but do not base any serious scientific arguments on it.
