ABSTRACT
Wikipedia1
is a very large and successful Web 2.0 exam-
ple. As the number of Wikipedia articles and contributors
grows at a very fast pace, there are also increasing disputes
occurring among the contributors. Disputes often happen
in articles with controversial content. They also occur fre-
quently among contributors who are "aggressive" or contro-
versial in their personalities. In this paper, we aim to iden-
tify controversial articles in Wikipedia. We propose three
models, namely the Basic model and two Controversy Rank
(CR) models. These models draw clues from collaboration
and edit history instead of interpreting the actual articles
