  title={Assessing the Impact and Efficacy of the Open-Access ChemWiki},
  author={G. Allen and Davis Alberto Guzman - Alvarez and Davis Delmar S. Larsen},
 The ChemWiki is constructing a virtually and horizontally integrated resource that addresses STEM education at multiple levels of sophistication and context.  Flexibility is central to driving the success of the ChemWiki.  Existing Wikitexts and Textbook Maps are available to enable instructors to repurpose content.  A data-driven pilot confirms that the open-access Wikitexts have the efficacy to replace costly commercial textbooks.
