About the event[edit | edit source]

We will deliver a general talk introducing Wikipedia, and how can scientists engage with it. In the interactive breakout workshop, we will be introducing Wikipedia as an important source of information and teaching participants how to edit entries and the dos and don’ts of doing so. The aim for the two hours of the workshop is to

  • give people confidence in taking first steps in editing, particularly referencing
  • help understand some of the functions of Wikipedia, particularly seeing and tracking changes
  • show how to find things to do - particularly stubs that need expanding

Appendix:Suggested articles to edit[edit | edit source]

There is a Wikiproject for Microbiology: en:Category:WikiProject Microbiology with 4187 pages. More-over there are many orphan unassessed pages that don't carry a WikiProject Microbiology tag- and there are red links everywhere. Some of the unreferenced stubs are remarkable well written!

The project has a en:Category:Microbiology articles by quality which shows 1817 stubs. I found the tool to do the crossref table in this 2010 table en:Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Microbiology articles by quality statistics- though interestingly- click on an entry and the results page Results page is dated 22 Mar 2014.

I have taken the run of High importance stubs. That should give us a few articles to start with.

A profitable approach may be to start adding references to high importance stubs, and when a redlink is spotted, to try to write a stub for it- but check whether there is already an existing orphan. --ClemRutter (talk) 00:23, 19 June 2014 (BST)
