Type of session:



Scholia is a tool that allows to display scholarly profiles for entities that are represented in Wikidata, from researchers to research topics and research journals to research conferences, research organizations, research funders and more.

However, Scholia can only display what is in Wikidata, and the way it displays the information makes certain assumptions about how it is represented in Wikidata.

In this workshop, we will demo some of the basic functionalities of Scholia, with special emphasis on its integration with curation workflows that allow to create missing profiles or enrich existing ones.

Some profiles to work on will be suggested but participants are encouraged to come with their own ideas for what they would like to profile.
