- pick any issue of any OA journal, and write to the authors of the articles and invite them to write summaries for AcuWiki. (There are 4,000+ peer-reviewed OA journals in all fields and all languages listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals.) If someone did this for a semi-random assortment of journals in the major fields, the idea could start to spread. Students who didn't write AcuWiki summaries might be willing to write messages to article authors to get this ball rolling. Similarly, if you could identify the major discussion lists for the major fields, you could post messages to each suggesting that members write AcuWiki summaries of the new articles they're reading, or assign their students to do so. The only snag here is that the messages would be generic (not about chemistry or history) and many forum moderators would reject them as off-topic. Here's a strategy to keep the messages from being rejected. If you're posting a note to a forum on psychology, then pick out half a dozen recent AcuWiki summaries of psychology articles. List them with links, and use them to introduce the idea of AcuWiki to the readers of the forum. (Peter Suber)

Collections we have permission to import
- Brede wiki papers section -- Done! We are free to import these!
- Stian Haklev PhD wiki -- Note that all the clippings (on the clip: and kindle: pages) are direct extracts from articles, whereas the notes (on the notes:) pages are written by me, and are licensed CC-0. The same is probably the case for [Ryan Muller's], [Niklas Karlsson's] and [Cresencia Fong's] wikis, they all use the same system (I might be able to create a dump in a format useful to you, with bibtex metadata etc, if interesting)
Inherent in their licensing
- this paper and others at the same blog
What do we know already?
- Review existing summaries and draft a wiki meta page about best practices
- What can we learn from the history of Wikipedia?
- Use talk pages to *show* the community being built
