Unlike Wikipedia, all changes will have to first get approval from one of 4000 experienced author of articles and the whole process should not take longer than 24 hours. Also, to edit articles will be required to register with the right name and address, while at the Wikipedia articles can be edited anonymously, and all that is recorded is the IP address of the computer from which there has been a change. Britannica will make a detailed record of each type changes and they will add system for article evaluation.

A large number of articles published in the on-line edition will be also published in printable version of Encyclopedia Britannica, which is published every two years.
