From the Main Page:

This site was made by Joey, a 16-year old teenager living in Auckland, New Zealand. The Science Archives is your #1 resource of all things science, inspired by Wikipedia and Wikiversity, that (almost) no-one can edit!
The Science Archives is very similar to Wikipedia, since we use the same software, cover the same content in articles, and share most of the policies. The only difference? Only administrators can edit. If you want to interact, see a talk page.
The Science Archives is a learning community. Learning and discovery are vital, ongoing aspects of life and society.
The Science Archives's community aims to further the discovery and distribution of science related knowledge in a very natural way, by helping people to learn and to share learning resources.
You can use The Science Archives to find information, ask questions, or learn more about a science related subject.
You can explore knowledge at The Science Archives's talk pages through advanced study and research.
You can also use The Science Archives's talk pages to share your knowledge about a science subject with others by building learning materials.
In The Science Archives, you can find learning materials of all types science to use yourself as self-study materials.
If you are interested in learning about a subject of science, browse our content to see if there is anything that suits your needs.
It would also be helpful if you comment on the materials you use, so that we can continually improve our resources.
We also provide modules that you can find here, and you can also create your own.
Also, if you want to meet other people who are interested in your science subject, you may want to join a learning community devoted to that subject (or help create one if one doesn't yet exist).
You may find someone there who can help you with your learning, or you may want to help someone else with what you already know (or have just found out).
Please help The Science Archives to develop its education potential at the learning and learning projects pages.

General disclaimer[edit]

As of today (02/27/2021), it is unlikely that any educational institution endorses this website yet.

This site is also run by teenagers who are not yet in university, and due to a relatively small community as stated above earlier, it currently cannot be frequently updated.

Additionally, our site might not be censored, but we might still include warnings should there be any content deemed inappropriate for younger audiences.

Privacy policy[edit]

See Miraheze's Privacy Policy or this link.

We do not host services for people under the age of 13. However, if you are a parent who thinks that the public information of your child is present on the site, do contact a steward on Miraheze Meta and they will be willing to take the information down for you.

Fair use[edit]

(USA)
Copyright Disclaimer under section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, education and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use.

(UK; from this site)
As an exception to British copyright law, fair dealing is governed by Sections 29 and 30 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, which outlines three instance where fair dealing is a legitimate defence:

  • If the use is for the purposes of research or private study;
  • If it is used for the purposes of criticism, review or quotation;
  • Where it is utilised for the purposes of reporting current events (this does not apply to photographs)
