CZ:Original Research Policy
From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
The following text is what appears on Approval Standards:
- Articles should be aimed to serve as excellent encyclopedia articles, and thus are summations of what is known about a topic. Hence, while articles may sum up their topics in novel ways, they should not do so in ways that imply new theories or analyses that in academic contexts would require peer review for publishing. In other words, they should not contain original research or observations.
This policy eventually will be expanded and clarified.
