Started by Neeru Paharia, one of the first employees of Creative Commons, AcaWiki aims to make accessible via summarization some of the knowledge the Open Access movement has yet to free and to offer a view on any papers, even Open Access ones, that is comprehensible to non-specialists. The site runs on MediaWiki with the Semantic MediaWiki extension and all content is available under the most liberal CC Attribution license."
