I would suggest to conduct them on Wikiversity, where people can collaborate on 
research projects in the same way that make Wikipedia a place no one is going 
to take an encyclopedic article seriously. 

Interesting metrics and ideas here, but nobody's going to take your
research particularly seriously if you choose to post it in an open
sewer.  I'd suggest a Medium or Wordpress blog.

Hi, you might be interested in "Getting to the Source":

That work was done 5 years ago, so it's worth checking for followup
research.  Citations might be a good place to start:

Hi Sashi,

I think that there is a research project regarding Wikipedia sources in the
WMF Annual Plan for this fiscal year. I believe that the Head of the
Wikipedia Library, Jake Orlowitz, is involved. I suggest that you reach out
to him at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Ocaasi_(WMF).

Also, I recommend that you subscribe to the Research-l mailing list at
https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wiki-research-l. You could try
asking your question there, especially if you don't hear back from Jake.

Good luck with your research,

Pine

[Wikimedia-l] Wikipedia's sourcing

2018-08-27 Thread sashi

Hello,

I thought I would ask if any of the junior or senior researchers here on 
this mailing list have conducted previous inquiries into Wikipedia's 
sourcing.


I am currently working on a project of determining what proportion of 
Wikipedia is sourced to newspapers, the military, the Church, social 
media, etc.


The data I've compiled this month, along with a brief write-up, have 
been posted to Wikipediocracy:


http://wikipediocracy.com/2018/08/26/wikipedia-sources-methods/

I imagine I'm reinventing the wheel... such studies have been done 
before, by the WMF, with power tools (bots), right?


Thanks for any corrections / suggestions,

  sashi
