Wikidata and the bibliography of life

Roderic D. M. Page
2022 PeerJ  
Not only is this literature vital to resolving disputes about taxonomy and nomenclature, for many species it represents a key source—indeed sometimes the only source—of information about that species.  ...  This article argues that Wikidata can be that database as it has flexible and sophisticated models of bibliographic information, and an active community of people and programs ("bots") adding, editing,  ...  I am grateful to David Shotton, John Mittermeier, and an anonymous reviewer for their helpful critiques of the manuscript.  ...

Wiki4R will therefore integrate Wikidata, the multilingual semantic backbone behind Wikipedia, into existing research processes to enable transdisciplinary research and reduce fragmentation of research  ...  Despite occasional uses of Wikipedia or Wikidata in research, significant barriers to broader adoption in the sciences or digital humanities exist, including lack of integration into existing research  ...  To achieve these goals, we will build a VRE on the basis of Wikidata 2 , the database that anyone can edit, which serves as the semantic backbone for structured data in Wikipedia and its sister projects  ...

['Wikidata: a new perspective towards universal bibliographic control', 'Wikidata. A new perspective towards universal bibliographic control']

Carlo Bianchini, Lucia Sardo
2022 JLIS.it  
After a presentation on how Wikidata items describe and identify bibliographic entities, the authors underline how the existence, use and reuse of Wikidata affect the way the professional community thinks  ...  Among these, Wikidata has a background greatly different from that of libraries as institutions: it is not devoted to bibliographic data, nor it is limited to personal authority control, but its value  ...  An example of how it works can be useful to understand how much Wikidata can help in the identification work for persons.  ...

What Makes a Good Collaborative Knowledge Graph: Group Composition and Quality in Wikidata [chapter]

Alessandro Piscopo, Chris Phethean, Elena Simperl
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We performed a regression analysis to investigate how the contribution of different types of users, i.e. bots and human editors, registered or anonymous, influences outcome quality in Wikidata.  ...  Tenure and interest diversity within groups also lead to higher quality. These results may be helpful to identify and address groups that are likely to underperform in Wikidata.  ...  KGs are important as they provide data that can be processed by machines to create new, tailored information. For example, Wikidata was initially designed as a structured backbone for Wikipedia.  ...

Nitpicking online knowledge representations of governmental leadership. The case of Belgian prime ministers in Wikipedia and Wikidata

Tom Willaert, Guido Roumans
2020 Liber Quarterly: The Journal of European Research Libraries  
The present article addresses this question by 'nitpicking' knowledge representations of governments and governmental leadership in Wikipedia and Wikidata.  ...  Such observations raise the question of how deep one would actually need to dig into these platforms' representations of factual (historical and biographical) knowledge before encountering similar epistemological  ...  When we finally do zoom out again and, following Gitelman (2013) , evaluate how humanist data might be imagined on Google, Wikipedia and Wikidata, we have begun to reveal a rather fragmented picture.  ...
