Each month a Science Collaboration of the Month (SCOTM) is chosen using this page. The goal is to improve an article to featured article quality by the end of the month using widespread cooperative editing. For a discussion on the correct format of science articles, please see WikiProject Science.

Stuck for nominees? Take a look at Science stubs or Requested articles in Applied sciences or Natural Sciences. Also check the /History, AID History and COTW History for articles that may have failed previously but are worthy of re-nomination, and Unreferenced Good Articles for articles that need citation work in particular.

The project aims to fill gaps in Wikipedia, to give users a focus and to give us all something to be proud of. Any user can nominate an article and vote for nominated articles.

If you want to participate in this project, feel free to add {{user scienceCOTM}} to your user page which creates:

Proposals

  • Chemistry -It looks like hardly anyone is here. Oh well. If anyone is reading this, I propose we work on the article Chemistry (I'm currently a chemistry major). This is an important article, and I'm surprised it hasn't been promoted to good article status yet. I'll start working on it. If anyone wants to help, please do. -- FutureTrillionaire (talk) 13:42, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Eh. You're welcome to edit the page if you want to. It's been a while. I'm not sure if I have the time do it though. -- FutureTrillionaire (talk) 23:01, 22 December 2012 (UTC)

Current maintenance instructions for this page[edit]

  • Place {{Current-SCOTM}} on the talk page for a newly-selected article.
  • When a new article is selected, please remove {{Current-SCOTM}} from the talk page of the previous collaboration.
  • Update the COTM template by filling in the last month's collaboration at /lastmonth and the current monthly collaboration at /current. This updates the template to reflect recent changes.

History of SCOTM[edit]

The science collaboration of the month was originally started by Litefantastic on November 26, 2004. However, before an article could be selected, the project was unluckily deserted due to a lack of candidates and participants. On July 6, 2005, Toothpaste resurrected this project and the first collaboration was selected on July 20, 2005. A collaboration was selected approximately every week until June 28, 2006, when the collaboration became a monthly event with the aim of producing higher quality science articles. Monthly collaborations continued until the end of May 2008.
