    This is an excellent answer. I would add only one point - any encyclopedia should be used as background information on a topic, and not for information essential to your thesis. For that go to original (or scholarly secondary) sources.

    Hi Jamie Brock. Thank you for your help. I agree with your idea that we should consider other sources too, specially for technical and scientific information.

    Hello joanwz. We hope that people who contribute or edit the content of Wikipedia are all because of their concern on its improvement and have relevant capabilities or expertise in doing that. Thank you very much for your valuable answer.

    Hi rjsadowski. I share the same idea that Wikipedia's constant changing can be good in making it always up-to-date despite no guarantee about the contributor's quality. So, it's important to have other alternative reference.
