Topic Pages: The Peer-reviewed Wikipedia Article (BOSC 2012 Poster)

2,447 views

Published on

PLoS Computational Biology recently launched a new initiative called Topic Pages with the goal of motivating scientists to write Wikipedia articles for computational biology topics. This poster gives some resources for interested authors to get started.

This poster was presented at BOSC 2012. My thanks to Eagle Genomics for their generous Student Travel Award.

Slides from the talk which accompanied this poster are also available on slideshare, from http://www.slideshare.net/jandot/s-bliven-why-scientists-should-contribute-to-wikipedia
