Following in the footsteps of several Wikipedians in Residence working in GLAM-Wiki frameworks, this project run by Daniel Mietchen and hosted by the German chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation has two main goals, shared with the newly established WikiProject Open Access:
- improving the coverage of topics related to Open science (and Open Access in particular) on Wikimedia projects
- facilitating the reuse of suitably licensed scholarly materials on Wikimedia projects - an ongoing media donation project
An additional goal - pursued together with the Wikimedia Foundation Research Committee (RCom) - is the development of policies regarding open access and open data pertaining to research about Wikimedia projects.
For an introductory overview, see Wikimedia blog, Signpost or OKFN blog.
