Revision and Co-revision in Wikipedia
U. Brandes, and J. Lerner.

The online encyclopedia Wikipedia gives rise to a multitude of network structures such as the citation network of its pages or the co- authorship network of users. In this paper we analyze another network that arises from the fact that Wikipedia articles undergo perpetual edit- ing. It can be observed that the edit volume of Wikipedia pages varies strongly over time, often triggered by news events related to their con- tent. Furthermore, some pages show remarkably parallel behavior in their edit variance in which case we add a co-revision link connecting them. The goal of this paper is to assess the meaningfulness of the co-revision network. Specific tasks are to understand the influence of normalization (e.g., correlation vs. covariance) and to determine differences between the co-revision network and other relations on Wikipedia pages, such as similarity by author-overlap.
