Research:Knowledge Gaps Index
The Knowledge Gaps Index is composed of several projects aimed at improving our understanding of knowledge gaps related to Wikimedia sites, our ability to identify and measure these gaps, and ultimately tools to address these gaps. It builds on the motivation for establishing a knowledge gaps taxonomy as part of the WMF Research team's Knowledge Gaps white paper and early work done by Jonathan Morgan on content gaps and how to measure said gaps.
- Metrics for quantifying the gender content gap: an exploration of how you might transform this taxonomy into concrete metrics
- Characterizing Wikipedia reader behaviour: a series of research projects focused on the needs, behavior, and gaps amongst readers of Wikipedia.
