Abstract

 This study clarifies Japanese students’ perception of the credibility of Wikipedia, using behavior of Wikipedia in their learning, and factors affecting their perception and behavior. For the purpose, we conducted a survey on 102 students of Doshisha University in 2015. The survey concluded that students think Wikipedia has some credibility and they use it in writing reports. However, most of them never cited Wikipedia in the reference of their reports.
