Le wiki accademiche sono wiki di terze parti concepite per essere usate in un contesto accademico con una maggiore enfasi su funzionalità come il controllo degli accessi, il controllo dei contenuti inseriti e funzioni di analisi delle ricerche.

Condivisione del sapere
Many academic wikis are using Extension:Semantic MediaWiki and leveraging the semantic web to share data. The MediaWiki API can also be used to mine data from other sites; combined with an scheduler program like Cron this can lead to semi-automated data distribution.
The vampire model consists of two rules:
- only registered users may edit
- only registered users may create accounts
This method of account-creation removes the burden of making all accounts from single user/admin, this greatly simplifies matters. Because trust of peers is relatively high in an academic setting, a single account can be made for a P.I., who then can make accounts for their students. Because MediaWiki logs all account activity it is (relatively) easy to track accountability for creation of spam/bot accounts.
- Leverage an existing LDAP (including Microsoft Active Directory, Kerberos) as a single sign-on
- Manuale:Blocco e sblocco
- Security issues with authorization extensions
- Collaboration with commercial entities on academic projects, may require site content security. This extension has been created for this purpose.
Integration with Third-Party Software
- Bundled with core, required for complex templating including most WP templates.
- Bundled with core, required for especially complex templating including many WP templates.
- Bundled with core, 2010-era wikitext editor sponsored by Wikimedia.
- A Polished skin for MediaWiki that comes bundled by default.
- Bundled with core, displays citations to show where information originated. This is particularly useful when merging data from a single document on multiple wiki pages to indicate why the information is authoritative.
- Forms-based editor for wiki-tables.
- Navigation aid when traversing the wiki, usually used to display and highlight a category hierarchy.
- Improve category listings with counters for contained pages of sub-categories.
- An alternative to the default search engine, lightweight but allowing more robust indexing of content through the third-party Sphinx engine.
- Extension:Semantic MediaWiki
- Allows you to add meta data to content in wiki articles and providing a query language for dynamically retrieving content including properties and lists of articles.
