research and as a predoctoral student, I need to make a state of the art.
I have started WikiPapers a wiki using Semantic MediaWiki, which is
very powerful to establish relations between pages and to generate
dynamic lists. It doesn't only include papers, but info about tools
and datasets, to replicate results.
It is unclear for me how your wiki are distinguished from Acawiki, that
one also being a Semantic MediaWiki with academic summaries.
From time to time, I post a backup link of the entire
wiki in the
mainpage, in the case you want a copy or a disaster occurs ; ) So
nothing will be lost (some previous efforts in this area finished losing
all the info). When WikiPapers grows a bit more, I guess that some cool
stats about itself could be generated, as researchers by country, most
studied topics (and those with little literature), biases between
English Wikipedia analysis and other wikis, etc.
I have added over 40 publications by now, you can subscribe to the
RSS feeds (the Firefox dynamic bookmark is great).
AcaWiki seems to have 22 summaries:
My Brede Wiki has 75 pages (most of which refers to academic papers):
I'm not sure if you want to join to the effort :
). You are more than
welcome to add your publications, tools and datasets. Any suggestion
would be great.
You are using the same license as I am on the Brede Wiki, so you could
copy page from my wiki to yours (or vice versa). I have been talking to
the AcaWiki people about exchanging summaries, but we haven't set up a
service for that yet.
When you are using title as the identifier for the paper I have found it
good to have a consistent rule for upper and lower case to have a as
predictable title as possible. I use lower case as much as possible.
Acawiki, yours and my wiki seem to use different fields in the MediaWiki
template for describing a paper. My template uses fields that tries to
align with Wikipedia's cite journal templates.
