In the article the main objects of the study in a wiki environment were analyzed, approaches on wikimetric researchs were explored. Mainly researchs related to the size and growth dynamics of Wikipedia, a wiki-quality content, social networking in the wiki environment and analysis of the reputation and contributions of users were studied. Also the international experience on the analysis of the implementation of information war technologies was considered, the tasks and problems waiting to be solved were shown. (pp. 58-66)
