Importing datasets through Wikidata:Dataset Imports has a number of benefits over importing the dataset without documenting the process. The process has 5 stages:
|Identify datasets: Datasets useful for Wikidata can suggested by anyone, including subject matter experts simply by following the instructions above.|
|Document the import process: The page documents the import process for each dataset allowing users to collaborate and provides a record for updating, correcting errors and keeping track of updated datasets. The page provides basic metadata about the dataset including name, source and topic.|
|A Wikidata item for each dataset: Creating a Wikidata item for each dataset that links to the Wikidata:Dataset Imports creates a database of datasets for each subject. It also links the data with the import process and allows much more detailed metadata to be recorded about the dataset.|
|Add data to Wikidata: The data is added to Wikidata using different tools, to learn how to import data see Wikidata:Data Import Guide.|
|Maintenance: The data can be maintained through using categories for datasets that are updated or new versions published over time.|
