History

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

On August 2, 2016 WikiJournal Forum was installed at forum.wikijournal.ru for commenting and discussing published articles among authors and subscribers as well as for discussing other issues, sharing ideas between all registered users and with administration of WikiJournal. But 2016 the forum was closed due to installing "Flow" discussion mechanism developed by Mediawiki developers. Now all users can discuss articles using the system.

In September 2016 started negotiations to purchase international domain name wikijournal.org to make WikiJournal the international platform for publications 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 WikiJournal administration. November 16, 2016 WikiJournal team started preparation to launch three localizations and administrative resource that were made on sub-domains for convenience:

On March 1, 2017 have been launched following WikiJournal editions: Italian, Spanish and French.
