Les jeunes et Wikipédia : un rapport genré ?

Abstract : Young people frequently use Wikipedia, but their trust concerning the collaborative encyclopedia is not optimal and Wikipedia's reputation is still controversial. How does gender influence trust in this source? According to selectivity model, females are more cautious when they evaluate information sources and more afraid of taking informational risks. The questionnaire survey conducted among 841 young people aged 11 to 25 years shows the existence of gendered differences about the epistemic trust in Wikipedia, sensitivity to his reputation and informational knowledge about it. Nevertheless, level of education has a great effect on the attitudes toward this source.
