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!
