Project overview[edit]

This project focuses on creating and improving content related to science fiction and coordinating the creation of guidelines and best practices related to science fiction, SF fandom, speculative fiction, science fiction studies, etc. While there are many specific WikiProjects oriented around film and television franchises, this project is intended to deal with Wikipedia's science fiction coverage in general, as well as coordinate work on science fiction literature, on science fiction history and criticism, and on science fiction fandom.

This project will aim to improve the quality and breadth of articles in the science fiction category and its subcategories using an assessment process. Project members are urged to take an active role in reviewing and identifying articles about science fiction.

As of October, 2011, there were 4,503 articles tagged for inclusion in the project, of which the majority are unclassified as to quality (1,801), stubs (711), or start-class articles (964). (For a full break-out by project class category, see Category:Science fiction articles by quality). We have only 200 Good Articles and 3 A-Class articles, all 3 of which are on video games.

The main To Do item for the Assessment division of this project is to assess the articles that are currently unassessed. It is also important to regularly check that the assessments of assessed articles are still appropriate, and to attend to requests for re-assessment posted to the main WikiProject Science Fiction/Assessment page.

Using the metadata script to display article assessment[edit]

If you would like to participate in assessment activities, you may find it helpful to turn on a metadata script that displays an article's assessment when you are viewing any article. In order to do that, click on your "My preferences" link at the top of the page, then the Gadgets category, and check the box under Appearance for "Display an assessment of an article's quality as part of the page header for each article."
