Hi Amirouche,

It's definitely possible to write articles in WikiJournals without a PhD (
example <https://doi.org/10.15347/wjs/2018.006>). External peer reviewers
are invited in the same way whether the author is some top prof or an
undergrad.

I definitely think that WikiJournal articles can be useful for Wikiversity
courses (example <https://doi.org/10.15347/wjm/2017.006>, example
<https://doi.org/10.15347/wjs/2018.005>). Bu I think that the two projects
have different technical needs.

As far as I know, Wikiversity is currently not accredited in any country -
a process usually tightly regulated by governments (Australia example
<https://www.teqsa.gov.au/>). Wikiversity is therefore more like P2PU
<https://www.p2pu.org/en/about/> than Open University
<http://www.openuniversity.edu/courses>, in that it can offer courses and
provide completion badges, but not yet award formal PhDs. I don't now
whether there are any users working on it, but accreditation for
Wikiversity courses would probably be most easily achieved by partnering
with established accredited universities, a bit like coursera
<https://www.coursera.org/degrees>, but that would still be a pretty major
project.

Hope that is useful info!
All the best,
Thomas
