Wikipedia launches mission to improve science content

An initiative to make online science articles more “comprehensive and comprehensible” has been launched by the Wiki Education Foundation.

The “Year of Science” initiative will run for the whole of 2016 and is intended to help improve Wikipedia articles related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as social science, biographies of scientists and women in science.

The initiative is looking for contributions from Wikipedia editors old and new, librarians and university professors in all subject areas. The initiative will also be working with colleges and universities in the United States and Canada to involve students.
