Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Attempt to get our experts to spend time sharing their knowledge with Wikipedia.Make sharing scientific knowledge on Wikipedia a meritable and worthwhile part of the dissemination process for NIBIO scientists.

What is your solution?[edit]

Hmm... Not sure, really. It would be an advantage to our institution to have our knowledge shared on Wikipedia, but it's hard to get our scientist to spend time doing that instead of publishing in international journals.

Who will you be doing outreach with?[edit]
