Welcome to WikiProject Futures studies, a WikiProject that aims to provide a framework for the improvement and organization of futures studies and foresight-related articles on Wikipedia, with a particular focus on theory and professional practices such as scenario planning.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us on our discussion page.

Anyone is welcome to join by listing their username in the participants section below and contributing to the project.

Tasks[edit]

  1. Identify and improve all articles about this subject
  2. Fill the gaps – there are many missing articles in this subject
  3. Improve this WikiProject page; also aim to create and maintain a portal.

Improve Outline of futures studies[edit]

The entire subject and Wikipedia's coverage of it is intended to be summarized in the Outline of futures studies. It in turn is part of Wikipedia's outline system which is one of Wikipedia's contents systems.

Please look it over and fill-in missing topics. If Wikipedia has an article or article section about those topics, please add links to them.

While analyzing the outline, please answer the following questions (and fix the outline as needed):

  1. What's missing?
  2. Is the structure of the outline (sections and indents) representative of the subject?
  3. Does the outline help understand the relationships between the topics presented in the best way possible?

The overall purpose of the outline is to help readers comprehend the subject by showing what belongs to it, and within the subject what belongs to what.

The outline is intended to be a taxonomy of the subject, and also serves as a table of contents and navigation aid to browse Wikipedia's articles (and article sections) about the subject.

It is also a useful tool for the WikiProject to analyze, plan, develop, and revise futures studies material. It is a hub from which to organize futures studies related topics.

It was built as a "reverse outline", a structural model of an existing work, which in addition to being a summary of the work, can reveal the gaps and other weaknesses for revision purposes.

Noticeboard[edit]

Articles in need of development[edit]

New articles needed[edit]

New articles created[edit]

Please feel free to list your new Futures-related articles here. Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them can be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Wikipedia:Main Page.

Adopt an article[edit]

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.
