The following are similarities between the subject wikis and many of these similar efforts.
|Trait for similarity||How the traits are similar||Exceptions in above list?|
|Accessibility of content||All content is freely available on the World Wide Web and accessible using a browser without the need for any subscription, login, or payment.|
|Licensing of content||Content is licensed using an "open" license such as CC-by-SA, CC-by-NC-SA or the GFDL.||Mathworld|
|Editability of content||Content can be edited by anybody, possibly subject to registration/login requirements||Mathworld (proposed articles or edits must be sent to a moderator who then may or may not put it up); Manifold Atlas Project allows editing but differentiates between approved and unapproved articles; Planetmath uses an ownership model where the person to create an article has authority over subsequent edits to that article.|
|One topic, one article||Articles are the fundamental unit of organization. Each "topic" gets its own article subject to various criteria||None, though there are differing interpretations of what constitutes a valid article topic.|
We focus on ways in which the subject wikis are different from all, or most, other alternatives.
