This page is for the proposal of new properties.

Before proposing a property
  1. Check if the property already exists by looking at Wikidata:List of properties (manual list) and Special:AllPages.
  2. Check if the property is already pending or has been rejected.
  3. Check if you can give it similar label and definition as an existing Wikipedia infobox parameter, or if it can be matched to an infobox, to or from which data automatically can be transferred. See WD:WikiProject Infoboxes for suggestions.
  4. Select the right datatype for the Property.
  5. Start writing the documentation based on the preload form below and add it in the appropriate section.

Creating the property

  1. Creation can be done after 1 week by a property creator or an administrator.
  2. See steps when creating properties.

ISO 12620 ID[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: Numeric ID from the Data Category Registry, which is a registry of linguistic terms specified by w:ISO 12620, which is a standard from w:ISO/TC 37. Each item in the registry has a PID which is a stable URI which is accessible via a RESTful interface, and it is available under a Creative Commons license. There is a web interface to the Data Category Registry as well as more information at http://www.isocat.org/index.html.
Discussion

The DCR is created and maintained by scholars all over the world. It is the subject of numerous scholarly publications (http://www.isocat.org/files/publications.html). Supporting items with links to the DCR could help with integration with Wiktionary in the future. Haplology (talk) 03:04, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As for the example: Why not 4948, 5748, or [2765 2765] for adjective (Q34698)? From my understanding, ISO 12620 is about implementing a registry for linguistic terminologies, i.e. existing vocabularies are imported to provide some kind of centralized system of reference. And isocat is one specific registry implementing that standard. Its identifiers are specific to isocat and not to ISO 12620. The listed terminilogies still exist in parallel, no attempts are made to create a combined vocabulary. Thus any concept ("class") may occurr many times in the registry. Intended usage of isocat seems not to provide direct points of refrence but rather to construct specific new sets of terminological classes for specific projects. But maybe I'm completely off the track... -- Gymel (talk) 08:27, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

@Jakec:. Though it may seem more consistent with other things, p553:Linkedin, P554: would not tell that this is a company identifier and that the URL should containt "/company". I guess a separate property would be needed (well, I would be in favor of replacing P553 with "Facebook account" et al. properties anyway). --Zolo (talk) 08:48, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

ISWC Code[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: The International Standard Musical Work Code is a unique identifier for musical works. It is adopted as international standard ISO 15707. The ISO subcommittee with responsibility for the standard is TC 46/SC 9. Each item in the registry has an ID which is accessible via this page and through other online resources. The authority also provides a unique IPI code directly "binded" to authors, composer, and other subject. These two codes could be extremely useful during an Authority control process.
Discussion

The ISWC code is an ISO standard. It is used in more than 120 countries and provide a unique code that could be extremely useful to undoubtedly identify creative musical works. --79.40.127.123 22:54, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

IPI Code[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: The IPI Code (Interested Parties Information) is an international unique identifier for composer, author and other relevant parties. It is linked to the ISWC code (please read the previous proposal), adopted as international standard ISO 15707. Each item in the registry has an ID which is accessible via this page and through other online resources. The authority, with associated member in more than 120 countries, provides a unique IPI code. This code could be extremely useful during an Authority control process for composer and author of creative works.
Discussion

The IPI code are ISO supported via the ISWC, it is unique and used all over the world. For a test, try to search "May Brian" - or any other composer you know - via this page. It could be extremely useful to undoubtedly identify author and composers. We do not currently have a similar authority control for author and composer. This code could also help to provide an unambiguous relation between a creative work and the legal holder of copyright. --79.40.127.123 22:54, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

I agree that it should be displayed as an url, but it is actually an identifier, as I explained in my request. There are more interesting applications if you use it to retrieve information through the API: http://egliseinfo.catholique.fr/api/v2/lieu-info/67/strasbourg/sainte-madeleine?format=json

History of Parliament ID[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    Done
Property:P1614
  • Description: Identifying code for the History of Parliament website, which is producing authoritative biographies for all British & English MPs (currently covering 1386-1421, 1509-1629, 1660-1832)
Discussion

The History of Parliament is a long-running scholarly project to write biographies of every MP in the British parliament (and its English predecessors; Scotland and Ireland before the union are not covered). The site is public and free to use, and is probably the main scholarly source on many minor politicians; we currently have links from ~4-5000 enwiki pages to member biographies. One unusual issue is that it was originally published in independent volumes covering fixed timeframes, so many MPs are covered twice (see above) or rarely three times; there is no single unique identifier per person. Andrew Gray (talk) 12:41, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Also - the identifiers suggested here are URLs. The HoP does have internal reference numbers for its biographies, but there's currently no way to get to an entry on the site using these and they're not public. If this changes in future, we'll be able to migrate them. Andrew Gray (talk) 12:48, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

Unique heritage identification[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: reference number of intangible cultural heritage of Slovenia (EID)
Discussion

Sister property to Slovene Cultural Heritage Register ID (P1587) (EŠD), but for intangible heritage where numbers are differently formatted and the source is different. Currently, there are 37 eligible entries, of which 10 (9) have articles. However, there are clues hinting that EID is actually meant to be the universal ID for all Slovene cultural heritage, so EŠD might become merged into EID at some undetermined point in the future. — Yerpo Eh? 18:54, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Could be "Unique heritage identification (Slovenia)" to avoid confusion. — Yerpo Eh? 20:47, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Dictionary of Welsh Biography[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: Identifier for the Dictionary of Welsh Biography
Discussion
This is a major biographical resource for Welsh people (as the name suggests). I'm currently preparing a list of all DWB identifiers to go into Magnus's mix-and-match tool when this property is ready.
The proposed identifier is English-specific - Welsh ones have a 'c' rather than 's' and use a slightly different URL, /en/s2-LLOY-DAV-1863 versus /cy/c2-LLOY-DAV-1863. We could easily use the Welsh form instead, or we could use one without the initial letter and rely on the user to add the language prefix (eg 2-LLOY-DAV-1863; the problem with this is that some have no number and would start with an initial "-").

BBF identifier[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: The archive database of the Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung (Research Library for the History of Education) at the German Institute for International Educational Research offers digitalised entries of the project Personaldaten von Lehrern und Lehrerinnen Preußens (Personal data of the Teachers of Prussia). Each entry (one per scholar) has a stable ID and is accessible online.
Discussion

The identifiers are already in use in a template on de.wikipedia, a complete list of the articles which include the VorlageːBBF Personaldaten can be found here (the second parameter of that list is the Integrated Authority File (Q36578)). The personal data, accurately digitalised by the Research Library for the History of Education, are precious historical sources for the biography of many Prussian scholars. Mai-Sachme (talk) 11:01, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support as a temporary measure. However, I would not consider this authority control per se, but rather a complete collection of primary (archival) sources for a well defined group of people (teachers in Kingdom of Prussia (Q27306) after about 1871) suitable to provide source statements for many sorts of claims.
I imagine a Q-item for the database Personaldaten von Lehrern und Lehrerinnen Preußens (or preferably the couple of individual archival fonds represented by the database - unfortunately a more detailed description did not survive the recent relaunch of BBF's web pages), provided with
< Q-Personaldaten... > formatter URL (P1630) miga < {{{3}}} >
and accompanied with a to-be-created "identifier to insert" property analogous to page (P304) would be a long term solution:
< August Wilhelm Zumpt (Q68848) (View with Reasonator) > claim search < whatever >
        stated in (P248) miga < Q-Personaldaten... >
        insert-identifier search < p192456 >
. We would however lose the statement about the identity of August Wilhelm Zumpt (Q68848) and the resource http://bbf.dipf.de/kataloge/archivdatenbank/digiakt.pl?id=p192456 but could regain that by a generic "identifier" property as already discussed for formatter URL (P1630):
< August Wilhelm Zumpt (Q68848) (View with Reasonator) > identifier-for search < Q-Personaldaten... >
        identifier-to-insert search < p192456 >
. We already could state
< August Wilhelm Zumpt (Q68848) (View with Reasonator) > catalog code (P528) miga < p192456 >
        catalog (P972) miga < Q-Personaldaten... >
but I'm not sure what would be going to break if we would start to exploit this in combination with formatter URL (P1630). -- Gymel (talk) 15:21, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
