The SMART-electron community has mobilised in order to launch an online Wikipedia Edit-a-thon Extravaganza of scientific article writing. The objective is to broaden the scope and the number of articles in the free encyclopaedia.
SMART-electron actively supports initiatives that aim to improve online accessibility to scientific knowledge. By participating in this initiative you will be able to contribute personally, from your home, to this effort to make science more easily accessible to everyone.
The Edit-a-thon will place a special emphasis on science and especially Physics articles. It will not be limited only to Wikipedia – for instance participants will be able to upload images to Wikimedia Commons.
The Edit-a-thon will begin with a short introductory webinar, held on Zoom, by Wikipedian Alessandro Marchetti. By the end of it, participants will be able to start contributing to Wikipedia.
