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.

If your submission is not accepted, would you be open to presenting your topic in another part of the program? (e.g. lightning talk or unconference session)
See Wikidata:Scholia for more details.
Several of Scholia's aspects have associated pages that help curate gaps related to the profile in question. They can usually be accessed by adding
/missingto the profile's URL.
Some of Scholia's aspects allow to compare several entities. They can usually be accessed by changing the aspect in the URL from singular to plural and adding the Wikidata identifiers after the slash, separated by commas. The current setup supports comparisons of up to about 5 entities.
