The Scotland WikiProject is a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to Scotland. This WikiProject is modelled on other similar projects and was started in August 2006, following a consultation. It runs alongside the Scottish Wikipedians' notice board, which had been functioning as a de facto WikiProject Scotland since October 2005.

(For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject and the Guide to WikiProjects).

Our goals
  • To provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of Scotland.
  • To improve Wikipedia's coverage of Scotland by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles.
  • To serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to Scotland in Wikipedia.
Our scope
The project generally considers any article related to Scotland to be a valid topic.
Our structure
Internally, the project may develop several structural features to help in managing its extensive work:
  • Coordinators, who are responsible for maintaining the administrative aspects of the project
  • Departments, which coordinate work on certain specialised tasks, such as peer review or project-wide collaboration
  • Specialised WikiProjects, which are groups for collaboration on specific areas of Scotland, such as geography, politics and sports.

Departments[edit]

Assessment[edit]

The assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Scottish articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WP Scotland}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in a set of categories that serves as the basis for an automatically generated worklist.
