Welcome to the talk page!

Happy to help[edit]

A poster about citizen science activities that took place on Wikimedia platforms

Use this section for signing up. Thank you Dohn joe for starting it. Belkinsa (talk) 18:05, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

Hi there - my spouse is a professional in citizen science, and I've been editing at WP for several years. Let me know how I can help. Dohn joe (talk) 17:58, 3 April 2019 (UTC)

  • That's great! If she doesn't want want to make an account, you can do the edits for her. I think the first thing is we need to do a Wikipedia search for articles that are under these two topics. Then we can have the experts, like your spouse, to review them and add the necessary tags so those who can edit know what needs to be done. I hope I'm getting this right since I'm still new to this.

Are we looking to document different projects on the citizen science world (e.g. Zooniverse's projects; one project = one article) or more in the general sense? I'm involved on one of zooniverse projects which still doesn't has a page, but I'm not sure whether there are enough references to support the page. Dvdgc (talk) 20:01, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

  • We are mainly looking at documenting different projects, although the Zooiverse main page can work if the projects within the main project/group/organization are in a table. Once there is enough information, a new page can be created. We can do general stuff also.Belkinsa (talk) 13:51, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

My focus is on integrating research workflows with the open and collaborative web, and particularly with Wikimedia projects. Have lots of materials on the matter, mostly in English but beyond the English Wikipedia. An example is the poster I am embedding on the side. More examples here. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 06:18, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

  • That something that I want to do myself! But I think that is a separate project outside this one as this one focuses on updating pages. The projects could be sister ones though. Belkinsa (talk) 13:51, 10 April 2019 (UTC)
Maybe I did not express myself clearly enough, but my point above was well about "updating pages" within the Wikimedia ecosystem being (or becoming) part of research workflows, and that includes citizen science activities of the kinds outlined in the poster. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 12:38, 16 April 2019 (UTC)
  • Gotcha, welcome to the project then! Belkinsa (talk) 11:31, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

I'd be glad to contribute as well. Please count me in. Prash (talk) 14:08, 9 April 2019 (UTC)

  • Thank you, we should finish planning by the end of this month! Belkinsa (talk) 13:51, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

I mostly work in English & Bengali Wikipedia. Please let me know, how I can help. কৌতূহলী প্রযুক্তিবিদ (talk) 08:50, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

  • I will once we start work! Belkinsa (talk) 13:51, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

I am a professional in both Citizen Science and Open Science and work in a UK institute which specialises in both. I know VERY little about editing on WP but I have always been interested in learning more. T a august (talk) 15:08, 11 April 2019 (UTC)

I've been working on CitSci content here and there on Wikipedia and Wikidata like Daniel Mietchen, added a proposal to make this a formal WikiProject below... I have a much broader strategic vision for a Wikiproject if we want to entertain that direction, it is outlined below. Wolfgang8741 says: If not you, then who? (talk) 02:54, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

Useful Links[edit]

It seems that there is a list of citizen science projects and I think we can start from there. Belkinsa (talk) 14:03, 10 April 2019 (UTC)

Missing Pages?[edit]

I found that some of the projects/groups/organizations are missing pages:

Pages need to be Updated[edit]

Proposing Create a WikiProject or formal Task force proposal for a visible Initiative to work on Citizen Science and Open Science in the Wikiproject Directory[edit]

Hello all! I've been working on Citizen Science in Wikipedia and other properties and thinking about what this might look like for a long time and mostly been operating in stealth on by not yet tapping the community yet to move the idea forward. Thanks for making making this move! Now that I saw this come across the email list I might as well lay out what I've been thinking so we can all discuss if this is within scope of what this "Roadmap" aims to do.

I think there is enough to create a project if not a task force which would have more visibility if there are enough of us interested in this subject to curate the project scope and this talk page can kickstart that. While the "project mission here outlines low hanging fruit I have a much larger idea to propose.

From a structural standpoint I think we would fit as a project or task force under the 1.1 Science section of WikiProject Science how this is more a meta level projects.

Proposal of a WikiProject - Open Science and Citizen Science and we could shorten to WikiProject OSCS or something.

Alternative Proposal of a Task Force.

I for starting a WikiProject in the Science, Technology, and Engineering directory if we have enough interest to sustain work. Details for adding either.

Sneak peak - Part of this is curating list of content and other half if mapping out a larger Open Science coordinated work plan and prioritization of content to target: Identifying and Resolving/Importing Non-core Data/topics for Citizen Science - Wikidata (great work done importing open access publications already and tagged)

  • Projects
  • Parent Organizations
  • Project Tools
  • Project Platforms and Technologies
  • Notable Persons
  • Related Theories
  • Related Awards
  • Taxonomies (iNaturalist IDs are mapping in WikiData)

Non-core data work in Wikipedia and Broader Wikimedia:

  • Locations - For instance I'm working on WikiProject Lakes to gain better coverage in Wikipedia and Wikidata for a research study around Citizens Science Information and Targeting.
  • Wikidata entity resolution of database IDs, Broadly overlaps with WikiData for Research.
  • WikiSpecies - Taxonomy
  • Overlap with GLAM Wiki

My way of thinking about laying out a roadmap here is thinking what is Core to Topics within Citizen Science then What Information are Complements to DOING Citizen Science thinking more about the needs of projects, platforms, and individuals. What is used on more than one project and how can we collaboratively develop the content and/or point to complementary work and organizations that we might invite to join in this effort. This would be to develop a strategy like has been applied to the Women in Red for which Women in Citizen Science could be a proposed task force in the Women in Red project. I think we could outline possible task forces to tackle various projects if this was a broader open science and citizen science coordinating project. example of a task force.

Provide tiered system of prioritization based on core topic to related. This may also point to existing projects with related scope to specific non-core topics and track their progress on certain topics that overlap to Citizen Science.

I'd be happy to take the time to write up a larger more detailed outline of what I have been thinking related to citizen science in a proposal for a task force or WikiProject page.

  1. Would more details be of interest?
  2. If so, what form would you like to see the expanded topic WikiProject or a Task force?

If the plan would be to migrate this sandbox to the proposal I can draft a proposal and draft scope here too. Wolfgang8741 says: If not you, then who? (talk) 02:46, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

  • You welcome and thank you for this wonderful proposal! I was thinking along the same lines when I was writing up the roadmap but wasn't sure if it was a good idea to jump on writing a proposal for it. You are welcome to migrate it. Thank you again! Belkinsa (talk) 16:25, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
