Wikipedia:Nupedia and Wikipedia

Nupedia is a low activity open content, international, peer reviewed encyclopedia project formerly run by Larry Sanger; Larry also started Wikipedia when he got the idea of supplementing Nupedia with a less formal "wiki" encyclopedia project. So there is a historical connection between the projects. Both Nupedia and Wikipedia are originated by Bomis, a WebPortal company. So there is a wider management connection too.

There is no editorial connection between the projects, however. The participants in Nupedia do not necessarily condone the contents or methods of Wikipedia--and vice-versa!

Adding Nupedia articles to Wikipedia

To add a Nupedia article to Wikipedia, all you have to do is find the article, copy the contents, and paste it into the appropriate location (whatever you think is appropriate). Nupedia content is released under the GNU Free Documentation Licence. You should note that Nupedia is the source of the article and provide a link to the original. For example:

An [http://www.nupedia.com/article/133/ earlier version] of the above article was posted on [[8 August]] [[2000]] on [[Nupedia]]; reviewed and approved by the Classics group; editor, Robert Dyer ; lead reviewer, James Allan Evans ; lead copyeditors, Charles Peyser and Jeri Bates.

You may not add articles from the Nupedia chalkboard to Wikipedia, unless you have permission from the original author. Content on the Nupedia chalkboard is not covered by the GFDL.
