Cultural differences in collaborative authoring of Wikipedia describes a study on the cultural difference in editing Wikipedia.

The researchers work from the four central dimensions of cultural diversity identified by Hofstede:

  • Power Distance
  • Collectivism versus Individualism
  • Femininity versus Masculinity
  • Uncertainty Avoidance

The researcher examined the history section of the French, German, Japanese, and Dutch Wikipedia version of the game article up to June 30, 2005.
