The Citizen is always looking for contributions! If you have any contributions, news, updates, or interesting stuff, drop in at the talk page of the current issue.
Welcome to the The Citizen--a monthly report--hosted on a CC-by-sa-3.0 Unported licensed knowledge base. You can access the news at any time from CZ:Citizen or CZ:CZ.
The Citizen is an independant publication and the opinions or content expressed within do not reflect the positions or views of the Citizendium, unless there exists content contributed by the Editor-in-Chief of the Citizendium that expressely dictates said opinion or view. Its Editor is responsible for all its content, but does not claim authorship of content written by its contributors.
We begin our first issue in 2008; Citizendium has reached almost five thousand articles, a license having been chosen (see press release here), and because more is planned as a part of the project's advancement it feels appropriate to begin the recap project now. You can access the news at any time from CZ:Citizen or CZ:CZ!
