Why Wikipedia: self-efficacy and self-esteem in a knowledge-political battle for an egalitarian epistemology (apparently also called Self-efficacy and self-esteem in a knowledge-political battle for an egalitarian epistemology in Wikipedia) examines the motivation of users in connection with contribution to Wikipedia.

[edit] Method and data

Semi-structured qualitative interview with six Wikipedia volunteers. Interviews were transcribed "categorized and analyzed thematically". The volunteers were recruited from the Danish version of Wikipedia.
