WikiProject Source Metadata

WikiCite: creating a shared bibliographic repository for all Wikimedia projects
The word Metadata in Wikidata Morse code.svg
Topics co-occurring with Zika virus (Q202864)

The aim of of the WikiProject Source Metadata is:

  • to act as a hub for work in Wikidata involving citation data and bibliographic data.
  • to define a set of properties that can be used by citations, infoboxes, and Wikisource.
  • to map and import all relevant metadata that currently is spread across Commons, Wikipedia, and Wikisource.
  • establish methods to interact with this metadata from different projects.
  • to create a large open bibliographic database within Wikidata.
  • to reveal, build, and maintain community stakeholdership for the inclusion and management of source metadata in wikidata.

There have been various proposals over the years for similar projects (see meta:WikiCite for details). Now that Wikidata is here, we can make it happen.
