I am putting together an application (not for WMF) regarding science
data in wikis. I have put up a few notes about it on a subpage on my
user page on Wikidata:
I am interested in representing science data, initially neuroimaging
result data, in a collaborative environment where further data analysis
can be made in the form of statistical meta-analysis. I have done a bit
of testing on test.wikidata.org
I doubt that with the notability criteria on Wikidata that all such data
will be appropriate for Wikidata, but Wikibase could be an interesting
tool to setup.
I am interested in hearing if any others would have a science Wikibase
in mind. I know the Gene Wiki people are (of course) adding material to
Wikidata. Daniel Mietchen pointed me to one other Wikibase instance, -
the Europeana, see the pointer at http://wikiba.se/projects/
I could set my own Wikibase up, but I believe it would be more
interesting with a joint effort whatever that might be. I even wonder if
WMF would be interested.
Comments and contributions are welcome.
