A project to develop a comprehensive compendium of knowledge

Welcome to Citizendium, a wiki for providing free knowledge where authors use their real, verified names. We welcome anyone who wants to share their knowledge by writing and improving articles on virtually any subject.

While this wiki was unsuccessful in achieving its original goals (see %newwin% [description on Quora], a core group of writers have continued writing articles in the wiki that we believe are useful, and which for various reasons could not be written in Wikipedia. After the probably ending of Citizendium as a public project on or about Sept. 30, 2020, we hope to keep the wiki running by a combination of donations and subscriptions. If in the future we decide to shut down, any leftover funds will be donated to the Internet Archive.

See Recent Changes—an overview of articles we are writing now.
