This review of wikis has some helpful information: Li, M (2012) Use of Wikis in Second/Foreign Language Classes: A Literature Review CALL-EJ, 13(1), 17-35

You may find some other useful articles in the journals you have been viewing – ReCALL, CALL-EJ and System. You should try to have a look at these journals, and use the index/search to find other relevant research. Remember to log in to the journal online via your EASE / MyEd login. Then use the library tab, and search for the electronic journal title. If you do this, you should find that you have access to the pdf of the full article, which you can download and read later if you like.
When you start to store a lot of pdfs on your computer, you will find that you quickly lose track of them! Make sure you have a system so that you save the article with the title and author, so that you can find them again. Alternatively, you could use a programme like Mendeley, which sorts, stores and makes accessible your collection of readings. You can download Mendeley to your own computer: http://www.mendeley.com/
