Departments are groups of members who do specific work. Tasks include authoring, maintaining the project pages, administering portals, adding articles, participating in reviews, managing the project and so on. The following is a list of departments within the WikiProject. WikiProject Members may not necessarily do only departmental tasks. They can contribute content as a member of Work Groups as well.


The outreach department guides its members on strengthening the sense of community in this project. Members' tasks include welcoming new members in the project, helping other editors in the project, managing the newsletters and helping the general project community to be in touch.


The Current Goa Collaboration seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. Every week, a single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to featured article standards.

Any articles dealing with some aspect of Goa (except for current featured articles and featured article candidates) are eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.


The scope of this article fundamentally is loosely defined as all articles and sections relating to Goa. Almost all of these will be (eventually) categorised under Category:Goa and Category:India


  1. Creation of a generally standard look and feel for all Goa-related articles.
  2. To produce as many Featured Articles as possible related to Goa.
  3. To produce as many Good Articles as possible related to Goa.
  4. To write as many Did you know articles as possible related to Goa.
  5. Goa-related Tourist Attractions to be given more importance and it should be improved with suitable images of the places, since these articles will be read by many from outside India.
  6. Those who read about Goa should have the feeling that they should visit Goa and India.
