Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton!

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, please ask me on my talk page. 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.

Empty itemsEdit

Hi! Your #temporary_batch_1585204556838 created many empty items. Just letting you know. Cheers! Nadzik (talk) 17:46, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Nadzik:,
Yes, I noticed, :(, I was trying to identify which caves the batch skipped to fill this empty entries.

Scientific papersEdit


Generally Wikidata is designed to only store scientific articles metadata:

  • title
  • language
  • scientific journal
  • date of the publication
  • authors
  • identifiers like DOI and PMID
  • and so on

Every item about a scientific article can also contain references (bibliography) that were cited in it.

I think Wikidata is not suitable for inclusion of text of scientific articles.

All the best,
