A qualifier for the place of thesis defence[edit]

In USSR dissertations were often made (and defended) in scientific-research instutes that weren't educational so educated at (P69) is not applicable. What sould one do? Ain92 (talk) 13:02, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Probably some sort of "degree-granting-institution" as a subclass of higher education institution (Q38723) might help? --WiseWoman (talk) 12:01, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

Competition with educated at (P69)[edit]

When indicating that a person has earned an academic degree from a university, should we use property educated at (P69) with qualifier academic degree (P512), or vice versa property academic degree (P512) with qualifier educated at (P69)? The former approach is currently used in 582 items, the latter approach in 59 items. I prefer the former (i.e. educated at (P69) qualified with academic degree (P512)) also because this is already the case in many show case items (such as Barack Obama (Q76)) and the use of qualifiers start time (P580), end time (P582) and academic degree (P512) is explicitely recommended at academic degree (P512)'s talk page. Omitting academic degree (P512) in this case also makes it possible to indicate that the person has attended the university but perhaps has not finished his or her studies (i.e. has not earned a degree). On the other hand, I can find academic degree (P512) useful as a property if the university is not known. Still, I think we need to determine a single recommended approach to indicating the university AND the academic degree at the same time, because templates such as infoboxes for people draw this information and need to know where to look for it without having to try out several possible schemes. Currently, the talk page descriptions of the two properties contradict each other. --Blahma (talk) 09:26, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

I use your preferred approach and I agree that I think it's better. I typically do educated at (P69), qualified with academic degree (P512), start time (P580), end time (P582), and academic major (P812), depending on how much information is available. Cbrown1023 talk 18:24, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
But of course when educated at (P69) has no relation to academic degree (P512) (see topic above) we should go with separate statements. --Infovarius (talk) 20:13, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

I think separating academic degree (P512) and educated at (P69) is not ideal, because it goes with some redundancies (which take time). If we could add sub-qualifiers for qualifiers of statements, it would be ideal. Such as

There should also be a possibility for multiple (consecutive) degrees at the same university (as in the USA: BA, MA, PhD). Jonathan Groß (talk) 17:18, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

You can't have qualifiers on qualifiers, but you could list the same place several times with different qualifiers (dates).
Personally, I found it easier to use P512 as a property rather than as a qualifier. --- Jura 17:41, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
Easier, yes, but why not do it my way? Jonathan Groß (talk) 05:36, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Try one and you will see it doesn't work. --- Jura 07:30, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
I know. But this is a wiki and the developers could change that, theoretically. Maybe it's better not to allow different hierarchic levels for qualifiers within a statement ... I'm no software engineer, so I don't know.
Aside from that, I have another quarrel with academic degree (P512). You can only enter one value for each qualifier, which leads to redundancies. See Hans Gossen (Q19210145) for example: Two doctoral advisors. Jonathan Groß (talk) 13:49, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Already data in qualifiers isn't necessarily being used .. so qualifiers on qualifiers ..
Special:PermanentLink/235933487#P512 is the way it looks when you add it as a qualifier. But even P184 should be a statement. --- Jura 13:59, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Not if a person obtained multiple academic degrees (e.g. Helmut Seng (Q1604199)). Jonathan Groß (talk) 21:19, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
In that case, you'd have to add qualifiers on P184. Just wondering, for both fields, is it of importance who it was? I suppose yes, if it was found later that they didn't actually write it themselves, otherwise? --- Jura 13:13, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
I updated links above from Blahma because autolist is now both deprecated and broken. I now added a 3rd link here and updated with stats as of now:

Hungarian translation[edit]

@Bencemac: Nem értek egyet a "tudományos fokozat" fordítással. A "tudományos fokozat" csak posztgraduális végzettségre vonatkozik (PhD), az "academic degree" ennél tágabb, alap- és mesterfokozatra is vonatkozik. -- Tdombos (talk) 09:42, 23 April 2018 (UTC)

@Bencemac:: szerkesztési kommentként: "ez elsősorban tudományos fokozat"
Mit értesz ez alatt? Hogy az "academic degree" elsődleges jelentése tudományos fokozat? Ez nem igaz, ld. en:Academic degree, valamennyi felsőoktatási intézményben szerzett végzettségre utal. Magyar fordítása is inkább felsőfokú végzettség, ld. Hunglish. Vagy hogy a tulajdonságnál most leggyakrabban tudományos fokozatnak számító érték szerepel? Ez lehetséges, de ettől még a tulajdonságot úgy kell elnevezni, hogy minden értékre igaz legyen: többezer olyan elem van az adatbázisban jelenleg, ahol alap- vagy mesterfokú végzettség szerepel értékként, ezekre nem igaz, hogy tudományos fokozatok lennének. Azzal viszont semmi probléma nem lenne, ha a tudományos fokozatnak számító értékek lennének a "felsőfokú végzettség" elnevezésű tulajdonságnál, mivel minden tudományos fokozat felsőfokú végzettség. -- Tdombos (talk) 14:13, 7 May 2018 (UTC)

Teljes kavarodás: a hu:diploma rossz helyre (postgraduate degree (Q23015928)) volt kapcsolva, míg a hu:tudományos fokozatnak nem volt párja. Utóbbi az előbbi helyére való míg az előbbi eleme a Diplom (Q5978719). Bencemac (talk) 13:58, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Should be named "has academic degree"[edit]

I'm working with some CS master's students on semantic modelling and we are trying to model academic degrees conferred by a university to Wikidata [1]. One of the problems that we see is that there are two "things" called "academic degree": a property (academic degree (P512)) and an item (academic degree (Q189533). We think that it would be better to name this property "has academic degree" (because it is about a degree that a person holds) and are trying to get a new property defined "confers" [2] that puts universities in relation to degrees conferred. We have also found a lot of academic-degree-in-field items, although we feel that the way it is done at Douglas Adams (Q42) is the proper way: Person is educated at place, has academic degree something in academic major something-else. We have also found a lot of academic degree (Q189533) used where academic degree (P512) would be appropriate. Would it be possible to rename this property slightly? --WiseWoman (talk) 11:56, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
