Technical documentation for Research projects.
APIs and systems in production
Research Landing Page
Research related codebases mainly live in 3 places:
- In Gerrit under the "research" namespace, e.g. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/q/project:research/recommendation-api
- In Gerrit under other namespaces, e.g. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/q/project:mediawiki/services/recommendation-api
- In Github, under WMF organization account, prefixed with "research-", e.g. https://github.com/wikimedia/research-navigation-vectors. Some other repositories also live under staff's personal accounts and the goal is to move them over to the organization's account.
The following are Research projects hosted on Wikimedia Cloud Services.
WMF Research Tools (wmf-research-tools)
This is a project for hosting various research related experiments.

Gathering user input
Various research projects need high quality crowd-sourced data. Gathering user input outlines ways of getting that data.
If you've developed a program that notifies you of important update via email, you can use the `research-alerts at wikimedia dot org` Google group to catch those notifications. Let Bahodir know if you want to be in that group.
