WikiCite is a Wikimedia initiative to develop a database of open citations and linked bibliographic data to serve free knowledge.
- Why we're building an open knowledge base of citable sources:
Video of our WikiCite session at WikidataCon 2017.
Imagine a world in which anyone could use an open citation database to support free knowledge, with rich information about every citable source. WikiCite is a cross-project initiative and a community coordinating the creation of such a database, leveraging Wikidata as an infrastructure.
