Ofer Arazy, Felipe Ortega, Oded Nov, Lisa Yeo, Adam Balila
2015 Proceedings of the 18th ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work & Social Computing - CSCW '15  
In contrast, in this paper we empirically study the nature and structure of functional roles within Wikipedia, seeking to validate existing theoretical frameworks.  ...  The analysis sheds new light on the nature of functional roles, revealing the intricate "career paths" resulting from participants' role transitions.  ...  -there are de-facto career paths within Wikipedia.  ...

Extraction of Career Profiles from Wikipedia

Firas Dib, Simon Lindberg, Pierre Nugues
2015 Conference on Biographical Data in a Digital World  
In this paper, we describe a system that gathers the work experience of a person from her or his Wikipedia page. We first extract an ontology of profession names from the Wikidata graph.  ...  We then parse the Wikipedia pages using a dependency parser and we connect persons to professions through the analysis of parts of speech and dependency relations we extract from text.  ...  Acknowledgements This research was supported by Vetenskapsrådet and the Det digitaliserade samhället program.  ...

Technology-mediated contributions

Judd Antin, Coye Cheshire, Oded Nov
2012 Proceedings of the ACM 2012 conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work - CSCW '12  
In this study we extend prior research on TMSP and Wikipedia by examining in detail the characteristics of the revisions that new contributors make.  ...  We present analyses that address each of these questions, and conclude with implications for our understanding of the progression of participation on Wikipedia and other TMSP systems.  ...  This three-stage path does not describe the path of participation for all (or even most) Wikipedians, but instead describes a common path to the more committed roles.  ...

How and why Wikipedia works

Dirk Riehle
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 international symposium on Wikis - WikiSym '06  
Unfortunately, some apply for this role out of a desire for power! And then are surprised when they get rejected. (This is a kind of 'regressive career path'-from an immature editor to a banned one!)  ...  I'm curious: Is there a natural progression through roles that you have observed? Are there typical 'career paths' for contributors? KN: Most people start out as editors or uploaders.  ...

Learning Local Content Shift Detectors from Document-level Information

Richárd Farkas
2011 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing  
We handle content shifters in general, instead of learning a particular language phenomenon detector (e.g. negation or hedging) and form a single system for document labeling and content shift detection  ...  These kind of tasks are usually solved by looking up indicator phrases and analyzing their local context to filter false positive matches.  ...  and dependency roles on the "subject path", respectively.  ...
