    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.

    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 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.
