Scholarpedia:Revision of accepted articles
As any registered user, you can revise and improve any accepted article in Scholarpedia. You are welcome to make as many or as few revisions as you wish. However, your revisions will not be visible to the public until they are approved by the contributors or the Curator of the article.
When you finish revising, click ‘request approval’ button at the top of the page. An email will be sent to all the article's Contributors with the request to approve or reject your final revision.
If two or more contributors approve your final revision and none rejects it, the revision will be visible to the public after 1 week of submission for approval. If the article’s curator approves it, it will be visible immediately.
Upon approval, you will join the team of the article’s contributors, so that you can too approve or reject revisions submitted by other users, even other contributors.
If you are already one of the article contributors, you will need only one additional approval, as it is assumed that you approve your own revisions.
If your final revision is rejected by at least one , then it awaits the final approval or rejection by the article’s Curator. His/her decision is final.
In the 'view history' list, you will see a link to the list of contributors who acted on your request for approval.
If your request for approval is neither rejected nor accepted by two article contriburtors, it remains in the pending form until a later revision is accepted.
Once you join the team of article contributors, you will be assigned Scholarpedia Rank according to how often your approvals and rejections coincided with approvals and rejections of the article's curator.
