This WikiProject has managed to standardize the articles on the known chemical elements (see Guidelines page). Now it is aimed at the maintenance of these at an agreed upon format discussed in Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Elements and at the expansion and improvement of each article to featured article quality (check out our Goals below). See also WikiProject Isotopes. For a complete list of articles covered, including talk pages and templates, click here. To see all articles covered, but not talk pages and templates, see the periodic table by quality.

Goals[edit]

Short term
  1. Bring iron to GA.
  2. Bring both Bplus-class element or element category articles (arsenic, boron group) to GA-class or above.
  3. Bring sodium, group 9 element, and group 10 element to GA-class to make the alkali metals, the group 9 elements, and the group 10 elements good topics.
  4. Bring all five remaining naturally occurring elements Start-class articles (cerium, erbium, holmium, neptunium, praseodymium) to C-class standard or above.
Mid term
  1. Bring all eight remaining C-class Top-importance articles (atomic mass, atomic number, bromine, calcium, chemical element, iodine, magnesium, sodium) to B-class or above.
  2. Bring the five A-class articles (astatine, berkelium, fluorine, metalloid, ununseptium) to FA standard.
  3. Work on the actinides and period 2 elements to make them good topics.
  4. Bring the rest of the vital articles (aluminium, chemical element, gold, iron, nitrogen, silicon, silver, sulfur) to GA-class or above.
  5. Bring all articles to C-class standard or above. (138/162 = 85% as of September 2013)


Longer term
  1. Bring all vital articles to FA standard. (4/12) = 33% as of September 2013)
  2. Bring all Top- and High-importance articles to GA-class standard or above. (60/96 = 63% as of September 2013)
  3. Bring all articles to B-class or above. (109/162 = 67% as of July 2012)


Eventual goals Support cluster.svg
  1. Bring all the remaining Top- and High-importance articles to FA-standard (20/96 = 21% as of September 2013)
  2. Bring all the other articles to GA-class or above (turn the "Periodic Table by Quality" completely dark green and blue.) (92/162 = 57% as of September 2013)
Ultimate goals Cscr-featuredtopic.svg
  1. Bring all element and supporting articles to FA standard (turn the "Periodic Table by Quality" completely dark blue.) (18/162 = 11% as of September 2013)
