2021:Unconference/Wikipedia and academic journals
This is a 30 minute overview of current projects and initiatives, with a focus on illustrative examples as well as overall statistics. It'll mainly focus on the WikiJournals (which specialise in these formats), but also draw in cases from other journals such as PLOS Comp. Biol., PLOS Genetics, Open Medicine, Gene, and J. Cheminformatics.
Since we're talking about bridging communities, we'll aim to be accessible to both:
- academics with no Wikimedia experience
- Wikimedians with no academic experience
This is a followup open discussion the the short presentation above looking at a few open questions:
- What new connections could be made?
- What are the potential risks and how can they be avoided?
- How could relevant audiences be better reached?
We've put two timeslots above to try to make it accessible to people from different timezones.
