Wikiproject Open on Wikidata[edit]

Hi all

I made a start on Wikiproject Open on Wikidata here as part of my coursework assignment for a Mozilla Open Leadership course. I've tried to make it as accessible as possible for new contributors to try to grow the Wikidata community including for experts to contribute their knowledge. I've included overviews of the major kinds of items I think would be most common. All feedback very welcome.

Best

Interested[edit]

I am interested in participating, mostly by adding the {{Open access}} template to the many journal articles I cite when I write articles. However, I am confused as to what the difference between the orange open access template and the automatically generated green one that appears when a PMC identifier is added? Andrew Z. Colvin • Talk 19:40, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

The purpose of a citation is to help a reader locate the source used by an editor to support the text in a Wikipedia article. The green access signal is an indicator to readers that the source linked from the identifier is free-to-read. cs1|2 templates (and by extension, the editors who place them in Wikipedia articles) are not in the business of identifying any particular source as an open access source. Open access is an agreement between a work's author and the publisher that dictates reuse of the source content. Wikipedia should have no part in identifying sources that may or may not be truly open access; that is properly the duty and obligation the reader who wishes to reuse open access content to confirm from the author and publisher that such reuse is permissible. To avoid the possible connotation that cited works are open access, cs1|2 avoids the orange access icon in favor of the green where green only means that the source may be freely read without cost or obligation to the reader.

Graphs from WIPO publications now available on Commons[edit]

Hi all

2.Shares of IP filing activity by region.png

I've started working with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to share graphs from their publications on Commons. The first 50 are available now here, taken from the 2016 and 2017 'Facts and Figures' publications. Please take a look and add useful ones to articles so that WIPO can see the value of sharing content under an open license.

Thanks
