Research into Wikimedia content and communities

The purpose of this mailing list is to discuss scientific research into the content and the communities of the Wikimedia projects: Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikiquote, Wikinews, Wikispecies, and Wikimedia Commons, Meta-Wiki.

Research into the technology of Wikimedia, MediaWiki, should primarily be discussed on wikitech-l instead. For content or community research projects with a strong technological component, cross-posting to both lists may be advisable.

Please note that only people who are actively involved in research on Wikimedia projects should post to this list. Typical on-topic posts include:

  • announcement of a new research project
  • discussions of methodology
  • questions and answers about related projects

Mailing list traffic should be kept at a reasonably low level. The list is softly moderated, and individuals posting off-topic material repeatedly may be removed.

This list is not directly associated with the Wikimedia Research Network, though members of the Network are welcome to post here if they are involved in research projects relating to content or community. Internal Wikimedia matters, discussions of new projects and similar threads should be kept off the list.
