The Q-SORT Project - A new Measurement Paradigm in Electron Microscopy[1] [2] (H2020-FETOPEN [3]) organized its first Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. The goal of this event was to edit and update descriptions in Wikipedia of concepts such as electron vortex beams, two slit experiments with electrons and synthetic holography, where information gaps currently exist (see below). The event was organised in collaboration with Wikimedia Italia and Wikimedia Germany

The Q-SORT Wikipedia Edit-a-thon was meant for anybody who uses Wikipedia and we invited scientists, researchers and Ph.D students to participate. It was a great occasion to learn how Wikipedia works and get together.
