This page documents a research project in progress.
Information may be incomplete and change as the project progresses.

This page, in a nutshell. Previous research suggests that the en:WP:Articles for Creation (AfC) is having a negative effect on productivity. In this project, we examine AfC's process more closely to better understand the phenomenon with the goal of producing concrete design recommendations for AfC and similar strategies.

More discussion coming soon. See the talk page for a work log.
