History

The history of WikiJournal started when the Russian version was launched at wikijournal.ru in 2012. This domain name was purchased on December 12, 2012 and afterwards the MediaWiki application was installed, which is why WikiJournal runs on wiki technology, just like the famous encyclopedia Wikipedia. The main page and general categories of the website were made in January 2013 and the administration of the journal started publishing some articles, but only in Russian due to the website address belonging to the Russian domain zone .ru.

In September 2016, the administration started negotiations to purchase the international domain name wikijournal.org to make WikiJournal an international platform for the publication of articles in other languages or their translation. After discussing the price for the domain name on October 17, 2016, it was finally bought and transferred with all rights for usage to the WikiJournal administration. On November 16, 2016, the WikiJournal team started preparation to launch three localizations (English, German and French) and these were made on sub-domains. The Italian, Spanish and French branches of the website were launched on March 1, 2017.
