Wikipedia Editathon

8 August 2015, Widnes, United Kingdom

A Wikipedia editathon - a collaborative event to improve Wikipedia content - will be held at Catalyst, a museum of the chemical industry, in Widnes, Cheshire. The event will be hosted by the Royal Society of Chemistry's Wikipedian in Residence, Andy Mabbett. All are welcome, but places are limited and so booking is required.

The focus will be on chemistry-related topics; including both scientific and non-scientific content (the latter including biographies, for example). We'll work on Wikipedia, but also sister projects including Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, Wikisource and others.

Assistance will be available for people who have not edited Wikipedia before .

Participants will be able to access Catalyst's extensive archives and RSC staff will be able to provide access to papers from the society's journals.
