Welcome to Wikidata, Mahdimoqri!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards!

Notability criteria for scientific articles[edit]

(moved from User talk:Mahir256)

What is the exact notability criteria for scientific articles (in order to be included in Wikidata)?

Currently 3.9 Million articles form PubMedCentral are available on Wikidata but 800 Thousands are missing. I would like to add these missing ones. If there is any policy against it, could you please let me know on what bases the other 3.9 Million articles have been selected and added to Wikidata?

@Mahdimoqri: @Daniel Mietchen, Harej: can answer this much better than I can. (Do make sure that you aren't making items for scientific articles already on Wikidata!) Mahir256 (talk) 02:50, 13 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The main rationale behind setting up Wikidata items for scientific articles systematically is
  • to facilitate the sourcing of Wikidata statements around scientific topics and
  • to handle the article metadata in a way that is consistent across Wikidata and manageable within the constraints of the Wikidata data model.
The motivation for focusing on PubMed Central is that it
  • is a full-text resource, which greatly facilitates verifiability
  • covers areas that are well covered on Wikidata, thereby facilitating the sourcing of claims in these areas
  • provides article metadata in ways understood by existing Wikidata tools
In the long run, I think notability for scientific articles should be something like "supports at least one Wikidata statement".

Thanks Daniel Mietchen, great point!
Wikidata:Notability clearly states that an item is acceptable if it meets at least one of the conditions including this:
"It refers to an instance of a clearly identifiable conceptual or material entity. The entity must be notable, in the sense that it can be described using serious and publicly available references. ..."
PMC articles are clearly identifiable entities and can be described using serious and publicly available references Mahdimoqri (talk) 16:11, 14 March 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fixing titles of scientific articles[edit]

I am fixing the title of scientific article items by removing the trailing dots or asterisks as discussed here:

I have requested a bot flag for this here:

Please help the bot request by adding your support or feedback. While I am waiting for the bot flag, I am using this account to do the fixing which I hope is fine with the community.

Mix'n'match catalogs[edit]

Hi, you created several catalogs with "test_PMC" on my Mix'n'match tool. Please don't do that. I have to manually clean up after you, so please don't litter the place. If you have problems creating a catalog, I'll be happy to help. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:15, 3 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Magnus Manske: thanks for creating and maintaining this great tool! I apologize that you had to delete the test catalogues for me. Yes I had some difficulty setting up the exact catalogue I was looking for. Is there any way I can test a catalogue before publishing it? If not is there any way I can delete a catalogue so that I can test a catalogue and delete it right after if it does not work as I expected? I searched for both but could not find either. Mahdimoqri (talk) 14:47, 3 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There is no way to test it through the import page, but the format should be simple enough, and it will perform some sanity checks before importing. If you're not sure, point me to the file you plan to import, and I can have a look. Alternatively, there is Scraper-based import, which is for scraping data off websites, which will test at least one page scrape before it lets yo set up a new scraper. Bit more complicated though. There is no way for users to delete catalogs, deliberately so. --Magnus Manske (talk) 08:07, 4 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Developing Bots to Load Clinical Trials[edit]

Hi Mahdimoqri, Just noticed today that you're loading clinical trials into wikidata. Thank you. This is something I'm interested in too. A couple things I wanted to mention (and please forgive me if you're way ahead of me here)...

  • Lane Rasberry, Daniel Mietchen & some others have started this wikidata page to help us standardize clinical trial entities.
  • I support & have been using AACT (, a public relational database that contains all info in AACT is sponsored by the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI). It's updated every night so has current info . (In case you're interested in using it too.)
  • Was wondering if we might find a way to collaborate. I'm very new to wikidata and just started developing a little Ruby on Rails app to load clinical trials. Feel free to contact me.
