Proposed participation[edit]

At the FORCE2017 Research Communication and e-Scholarship Conference scientists, publishers, librarians, educators, and others discuss the way in which scholarly and scientific information is communicated and shared. The stated goal of the conference is «to create new partnerships and collaborations and support implementation of ideas generated at the conference and subsequent working groups». With my participation in this conference, I want to bring a Wikimedian point of view to these discussions, furthermore, this will advance my research in the field of the impact of Wikipedia on scholarly publications.
