Wikipedia:WikiProject Wikicite

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The pages for this project have been moved to Meta-Wiki; see Wikicite.

In brief, though, Wikicite is an umbrella for several projects aimed at providing Wikipedia and Wikimedia sister projects with a scholarly infrastructure and will include among its deliverables such stand-alone resources as m:Wikicat- an editable bibliographic catalog.

  4. I am happy to contribute to this project :). Paul Wilson 13:30, 31 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  5. A long-needed project. 172 21:59, 31 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  6. I'll just put my name here without asking anybody. I find it increasingly difficult to write anything useful in WP, without the capability of directing readers to specific parts of referenced papers or books, with helpful or critical comments. (I am prepared to give lots of examples). The Wikicite facility is sorely needed.CSTAR 20:56, 12 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  10. SEWilco: Starting my efforts with existing Footnote/References issues. (SEWilco 6 July 2005 06:15 (UTC))
  11. persathion I have juste done a proposition on the same subject on the French Wikipedia ( Differences exist and I will wait from first feedbacks to speak about on meta Mathias.Peron 10:12, 8 August 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  12. In a couple of month (if everything goes well :-), there will be a Romanian Union Catalogue which will be open to anyone to contribute bibliographic data, in a (refined) XML format (but convenient wizzards will be provided). The tender for the (open source) software for the catalogue is days ahead. This repository could be a suitable host for the Wikicite. --Dan Matei 20:26, 18 September 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  13. Plan to work on perfecting existing citation templates, and possible Blue Book-style citations for law articles. I support the Harvard citation and referencing style, where appropriate. COGDEN 21:44, 7 November 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  14. I support anything that helps to promote a scholarly approach to providing good sources for Wikipedia content. Maybe the proposed Wikiversity project will help such efforts. --JWSchmidt 22:23, 15 December 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  15. This would be great, and I'm interested in helping development. Meanwhile I'm working towards a combined {{citation}} template, starting with {{cite book}}. ··gracefool | 00:00, 17 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  16. I seem to be spending most of my time right now adding and fixing various citation templates. —Phil | Talk 16:30, 21 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  17. Standardization is woefully lacking, esp. in the format for hyperlinking citations to references. Ling.Nut (talk · contribs)
  18. This will improve citing, and make it easier-but only once the immense work of setting up the apparatus is done, and all the questions of what source is appropriate when are answered. In the meantime, I'm working on practical problems, and interested in modest goals. DGG (talk) 05:17, 7 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  19. I'm in. —Bender235 (talk) 19:19, 2 June 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
