Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia, created and edited by volunteers around the world and hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation. It is also one of the most highly trafficked websites in the world, yet one of the most untapped resources in science communication.
This one-hour discussion taught us how to use this platform, as well as give attendees the opportunity to address any questions they might have like what are Wikipedia’s pitfalls? Is Wikipedia dying? Does Wikipedia earn money? Who runs Wikipedia? How do I access and edit my entries?
Facilitator: Douglas Scott, Editor on English language for Wikipedia since 2006 and former Wikimania chairperson (2015-2020).
