On measuring the quality of Wikipedia articles

Gabriel De la Calzada, Alex Dekhtyar
2010 Proceedings of the 4th workshop on Information credibility - WICOW '10  
The approach is based on the idea that the quality of Wikipedia articles with distinctly different profiles needs to be measured using different information quality models.  ...  This paper discusses an approach to modeling and measuring information quality of Wikipedia articles.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank Franz Kurfess, Clark Turner, Kevin O'Gorman, Mark Hutchenreuther, and Kurt Voelker: Cal Poly professors who kindly allowed us to administer the experimental study  ...

Measuring article quality in wikipedia

Meiqun Hu, Ee-Peng Lim, Aixin Sun, Hady Wirawan Lauw, Ba-Quy Vuong
2007 Proceedings of the sixteenth ACM conference on Conference on information and knowledge management - CIKM '07  
We conduct experiments on a set of well-labeled Wikipedia articles to evaluate the effectiveness of our quality measurement models in resembling human judgement.  ...  Our Basic model is designed based on the mutual dependency between article quality and their author authority. The PeerReview model introduces the review behavior into measuring article quality.  ...  Our objective is to develop quantitative measurement models to determine the quality of articles in Wikipedia with minimal human interpretation on the article content.  ...

Measuring Article Quality in Wikipedia using the Collaboration Network

Baptiste de La Robertie, Yoann Pitarch, Olivier Teste
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining 2015 - ASONAM '15  
In this paper, we tackle the problem of automatically establishing the quality of Wikipedia articles.  ...  Due to the huge number of articles and the intensive edit rate, the manual evaluation of article content quality is inconceivable.  ...  Finally, because of the intensive edit rate of Wikipedia articles, adapting our model to a streaming environment would enable the quality calculation on the fly.  ...

Besiki Stvilia, Abdullah Al-Faraj, Yong Jeong Yi
2009 Library & Information Science Research  
It also showed the feasibility of using some article edit-based metrics for automated quality measurement across different Wikipedia contexts.  ...  An initial exploration into the issue of information quality evaluation across different cultural and community contexts based on data collected from the Arabic, English, and Korean Wikipedias showed that  ...  The study also developed a hierarchical model for context similarity measurement. The Hofstede cultural dimensions were used to represent the cultural level of the model.  ...

Analysing the Usage of Wikipedia on Twitter: Understanding Inter-Language Links

Eva Zangerle, Georg Schmidhammer, Gunther Specht
2016 2016 49th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)  
Furthermore, we observe that the quality of the tweeted articles is constantly higher in comparison to their counterparts, suggesting that users choose the article of higher quality even when tweeting  ...  Therefore, we investigate causes for the usage of such inter-language links by comparing the tweeted article and its counterpart in the tweet's language (if there is any) in terms of article quality.  ...  We apply a set of 12 quality measures to the articles to be able to compare the quality of the article that was actually tweeted (e.g., Hawaiian_Islands on the English Wikipedia) and its counterpart in  ...

Multilingual Ranking of Wikipedia Articles with Quality and Popularity Assessment in Different Topics

Włodzimierz Lewoniewski, Krzysztof Węcel, Witold Abramowicz
2019 Computers  
On Wikipedia, articles about various topics can be created and edited independently in each language version. Therefore, the quality of information about the same topic depends on the language.  ...  The goal of this study is to show what topics are best represented in different language versions of Wikipedia using results of quality assessment for over 39 million articles in 55 languages.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Evaluating the Citations of Information Systems Journals in Wikipedia

Huijing Deng, Yi Liu
2017 Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems  
Our preliminary findings show that the citations of papers published in IS journals by Wikipedia articles are few.  ...  These approaches assess the academic quality of journals and rank them accordingly. However, the quality of these journals beyond academia has not been investigated extensively.  ...  Giles (2005) finds the article quality of Wikipedia is comparable to those of Britannica on scientific topic. Wikipedia community actually has made a lot of efforts in quality assurance.  ...
