Type of session:



Scholia is a web service hosted [ on Toolforge] that generates scholarly profiles that provide windows into Wikidata's research-related content. It can be used to get an overview about a specific aspect of research, which could be, for instance, a topic, a research institution or a biological species — over 20 profile types are available. Scholia can also facilitate several forms of deeper engagement with some such aspects, e.g. the topics of publications using a particular resource. It facilitates data curation and can assist groups in prioritizing edits, identifiying gaps and coordinating activities.

In this workshop, participants will learn how Scholia works, how it can be used, how it interacts with Wikidata, Wikimedia Commons, Wikipedia and other parts of the Wikimedia landscape. Special attention will be given to community structures like WikiProjects and how they can integrate Scholia with their workflows.
