Respipedia is a peer-reviewed wiki dedicated to respiratory medicine, open to contributions from ERS members only. Articles are created based on the principle of collaborative article editing, reviewed and validated by a page reviewer and updated by a continuous editing process.
The aim of Respipedia is to offer ERS members the potential to be more active online by collaborating on content creation. Additionally, authors will benefit from the credit of having their names associated with articles published on a high-quality wiki hosted by the ERS. This would be a great opportunity to start a collaboration with colleagues from around the world and potentially to continue this collaboration in other professional settings.
During the initial pilot phase of launch, viewing of Respipedia articles will be restricted to ERS members, before they are opened to the wider public later. Users who would like to contribute content are invited to subscribe to one of the ERS membership schemes that can be found on the main ERS website.
