A few of us from Wiki Project Med are working to put on a space at Wikimania for Health related talks. We are drafting this HERE. Please suggest ideas and indicate if you are able to attend. Best Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:08, 16 April 2019 (UTC)

Nuvola apps important.png

Hello. The name of the only person who will vote on behalf of this group to select the next two Board members is now at m:Affiliate-selected Board seats/2019/Eligible entities. Please contact me directly as soon as possible if you need any kind of corrections there. There's only a few hours left to endorse candidates, and only the official voter can do that. I would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that you can make a difference with the necessary translations.

Appreciate your attention and your support so far! Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 12:15, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

A proposal for WikiJournals to become a new sister project[edit]

Over the last few years, the WikiJournal User Group has been building and testing a set of peer reviewed academic journals on a mediawiki platform. The main types of articles are:

  • Existing Wikipedia articles submitted for external review and feedback (example)
  • From-scratch articles that, after review, are imported to Wikipedia (example)
  • Original research articles that are not imported to Wikipedia (example)

Proposal: WikiJournals as a new sister project

From a Wikipedian point of view, this is a complementary system to Featured article review, but bridging the gap with external experts, implementing established scholarly practices, and generating citable, doi-linked publications.

Introducing Wikimedia Space: A platform for movement news and organizations[edit]

Hi Wiki Project Med,
I’m writing to let you know that the Community Engagement department [1]at the Wikimedia Foundation is launching a new platform, Wikimedia Space. Here, you will find stories for and by contributors to the Wikimedia movement, and a space for discussions of different topics.

We know that finding information about Wikimedia activities and processes is very complicated, which makes the learning curve to enter our movement and be successful afterwards, really steep. By centralizing community stories and conversations in one shared space, we believe we are facilitating access and discoverability of topics across the movement, improving, in turn, connections among Wikimedians.

As an affiliated organization to the Wikimedia Foundation, we hope that you can share this platform with your local community, and we count on you to encourage them to add their voices. If you’d like to contribute stories, and overall, participate in the discussion section, please read our blogging guidelines and our code of conduct and join the conversation. Find more information about the project on its page on Meta.

Looking forward to seeing you at Wikimedia Space,
María Cruz, Communications and Outreach Manager, Wikimedia Foundation.

Supporting your work in Wikimedia Space[edit]

Hello Wiki Project Med!

Congratulations on your recent recognition as a thematic organization! I see that a good amount of your work revolves around networking with and training experts in the medical field to increase contributions related to medical content on the projects. I want to offer you a resource that can help maintain organized, searchable discussions with the volunteers you train, and help you publicize your work to outside audiences. It’s called Wikimedia Space, and you can read a quick intro to it.

Let’s chat! I’d be happy to give you a demo and answer any questions. --ELappen (WMF) (talk) 23:32, 21 October 2019 (UTC)

Edit: I see you received a message above. Doesn't hurt to invite you all again! I hope you'll consider checking out Space as a resource.

Juror for WSC2019[edit]

Hi, I am refining the list of international juror for Wiki Science Competition. Thre will be soon more names from Ireland or Poland or Switzerland or Estonia... you see only four at the moment but only because collecting all the information such as the picture , takes time with people who are quite busy. There are few places left for a jury of circa 10 member. Does anyone want to join and represent the education sector? Let me know. For the international jury a certain relevance in the field (e.g. professor) would be apreciated. Of course it all depends also on some additional factor such as gender ratio and balance of fields but in the worst case I will keep the name in mind for the following edition. Thank you!--Alexmar983 (talk) 22:32, 5 October 2019 (UTC)

FYI I confirmed a juror with expertise in medicine and wikimedia platform, but contact me if you just want to know more. Bye.--Alexmar983 (talk) 23:56, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Introducing Wikimedia Diary: A memory book (notebook) for all[edit]

Wikipedia Education Globe 1.png Wikimedia Diary
Hello Wiki Project Med, I wanna share you about Wikimedia Diary, a public memory book (notebook) in which Wikimedians from all over the world are free to write any worth noting event/activities/experiences by them or community in this Wiki world. It is a more casual place to write about what one is up to.

As we all know, a diary is a book in which diarist keeps a daily record of events and experiences. Likewise, the basic idea of Wikimedia Diary is that we do many activities here in wiki world which we are proud of, but unfortunately it became only the history anytime. So, It is meant to record those activities on the happened date with a signature (~~~~) which is worth noting, and letting fellow Wikimedians know about what inspirational you've did. It would motivate users from all around the world to keep on cool activities and publish a note. I hope you share your activities with all of us on the page, and please let your friends know about Wikimedia Diary. Also, your feedback is welcome on the discussion page. Thank you!
Kind regards,
Tulsi Bhagat, Initiator of Wikimedia Diary, Wikimedia movement communications group.
