WikiCite's scope is the corpus of formal publications and of the sources citing them or cited form them. An exemplary technical development is d:Wikidata:Scholia as a browsing and curation front end, and its applications include creating academic profiles of people and their publications, entire universities and their publications, and general reference information such as lists of papers or data collections for any subject of existing research.

Attendees of this presentation will learn the following:

  • How to make a profile of a researcher at a university
