Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Mike Linksvayer!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Starting items about scholarly articlesEdit

Hi Mike, if the articles for which you'd like to create items have a DOI, PMID or PMCID, then you can use WD:SourceMD to do it in a semi-automated way. If you have only a PMID or PMCID, then WD:Fatameh is also an option. To explore bibliographic metadata in context, try WD:Scholia. --Daniel Mietchen (talk) 21:51, 27 December 2019 (UTC)

Thank you! Works great, I will use all the time now. Mike Linksvayer (talk) 21:22, 28 December 2019 (UTC)
