Wikidata:WikiCite/Bibliographic metadata for scholarly articles in Wikidata

From Wikidata
Jump to navigation Jump to search


This page is to develop a proposal for how bibliographic metadata for scholarly articles in Wikidata should be structured. It originated from the PLOS hackathon on October 18, 2014 (impression from the meeting) and is now being developed further as part of WikiProject Source MetaData.

Participants at the hackathon[edit]

  • Jonathan Dugan (PLOS) - @jmdugan
  • Jonas Dupuich (PLOS) - @jdup
  • Mitar (UC Berkeley/PeerLibrary) - @mitar_m
  • Dario Taraborelli (Wikimedia Foundation) - @readermeter
  • Daniel Mietchen (WikiProject Open Access) - @evomri
  • Karen Coyle - @karencoyle

  • Data model (and mapping it to existing bibliographic data models)[edit]


    Ideas for input[edit]

    RDF and MODS, in contrast to BibTeX and common CSL-Data as used in Zotero, can contain author identifiers instead of raw strings only.

    Contributorship links[edit]

    Wikidata item page[edit]

    See also: Wikidata:WikiProject_Books.

    • Item label: article title
      • label shows up in instant search results; human-readable
    • Item description: "scholarly article by [lastname,firstname] [et al], [year]"
    • aliases


    Yet to clarify which properties should only be used as qualifiers.
