Surprisingly enough there is a peer-reviewed alternative to Wikipedia, called Scholarpedia. The authors pretend that 

"...Scholarpedia articles could be cited, articles are not frozen and outdated, but dynamic, subject to an ongoing process of improvement moderated by their curators."

So it is supposed to be better than Wiki, due to the peer-review system, and better than any printed issues, because they cannot be changed.

I wonder whether Scholarpedia will really become a source of "articles that could be cited".
