Wikipedia - a serious platform for researchers?

On Thursday, 13 December, 9.00-13.00 we focus on wikidata and wikimedia as tools for research.

This event is targeted DTU researchers, but others with an interest in the use of the wiki media in research and administration are very welcome.

The event has two speakers:
Finn Årup Nielsen, from DTU Compute, and chair of Wikipedia Denmark, will give an introduction to what Wikipedia can be used for in research, for instance as a data tool (wikidata tools for scientists - such as Scholia).

Knut Anton Bøckmann from the Royal Danish Library will talk about how to integrate Wikidata and Wikipedia in databases and reference works, like libraries catalogues. Knut will address linked data, metadata enrichment, open science in libraries, etc.

Knut and Finn will coordinate their presentations and we hope for a debate and input from the audience.
