Andy Mabbett
Wikimedian in Residence

Andy Mabbett, Wikimedian in Residence with Coventry University, and with ORCID, and formerly with the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Physiological Society, and with the History of Modern Biomedicine Research Group, will explore the many ways in which the various facets of science are represented on Wikimedia projects, including of course Wikipedia, but also Wikidata, Wikispecies, Wikimedia Commons and others, and the initiatives that help to make this happen. Key among these is WikiCite, which stores metadata about science papers. He will also demonstrate some of the resulting benefits and will explain some of the tools available to exploit them, and to make adding to Wikimedia projects easy for scientists and science communicators to do. He will also explain some of the common errors science communicators make when new to Wikimedia projects, and how to avoid them. Andy will close by suggest some discrete ten-minute tasks that scientist can complete in order to contribute to the mission of making "a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. twitter: @pigsonthewing
