WikiProject Open is a place to collaborate on improving Wikipedia articles about openness.[1] This includes these topics:

Some relevant concepts – notably open access – have thriving WikiProjects already; you will find links to them throughout the WikiProject Open pages. But we have chosen to centralize our "talk pages" so that we can have more inclusive and productive discussions.

Since October 2013, we have been working actively on how to build out these pages. Please see the "Talk" and "WikiProject Planning" tabs above for the most up-to-date info - and add your ideas! You're encouraged to join our email list, or any planning sessions advertised on the planning tab.

Tasks[edit]

Articles to improve and create[edit]
