Scholarpedia v Wikipedia

Scholarpedia is a free open access peer reviewed encyclopedia written by experts in their respective fields covering physics, computational intelligence and dynamical systems.

It aims to publish "living reviews" as opposed to research papers. The (ambitious) goal of Scholarpedia is to be a useful encyclopedic reference for scholars of different levels and is aimed at advanced undergraduate or graduate students in similar areas.

Each article in Scholarpedia has its own copyright policy, freely selected by the authors from the choices such as Creative Commons etc. Probably a better idea to cite from this resource than something from wikipedia?
