Wikipedia is the first choice in many information searching situations. This makes Wikipedia an excellent arena to communicate your research field to a wide audience, and to let your knowledge in your field benefit society. 

This workshop is held by Olle Terenius, a malaria researcher based at Uppsala University working on bacteria in mosquitoes. In a world full of fake news, he encourages researchers at Swedish universities to participate in making Wikipedia an updated and true source of information for everyone.

The workshop includes:

  • Why writing about your research field in Wikipedia is a good idea 

  • The basics of Wikipedia editing 

  • Time to work with key articles in your subject area 

The language of the workshop is English.
