Freely results[edit]

Concerning this aspect "Results must be made freely available. The results of the study must be made available to the Wikipedia community within one year of completion", I think it would be beneficial to suggest what is understood as freely avaielble: For example, to release at least one article with a free license and spread it though wikimedia channels. Forms to spread it though wikimedia channels could be to make it availeble from the page on Academic Studies on Wikipedia or similar pages, to send it to the Wikipedia Research e-list, to suggest a presentation at next Wikimania or other Wikimedia events, among others. --Lilaroja 13:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]


I think this process is well though and it is a good idea, but I have some problem with the "tone". I find it at some moments a bit irritating or afraiting. Researchers must meet many many difficulties and undertaincies when doing research, in this regard, I would use a more welcoming and pedagogical language, at the end this is a page to be read by researhers, so it might be easy and pleasureble to be read by that audience. Here I am not refering about changing the procedual (the procedual is fine for me), just a bit the tone. For example, I am refering to make it more explicit from the very start that this is in order also to help researchers, as they could gain a simbol that might facilitate their communication with the community. Does make sense? --Lilaroja 13:51, 25 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]


I tried to create a test in order to see how the process of request goes (what is required), but I couldn't complete it. The system did not generate a request after finning the box. --Lilaroja 14:16, 25 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]
