Researchers in Wikipedia

The free encyclopedia ‘Wikipedia’ – popular resource among the users of different age and social status, used for the search of information. Wikipedia has a lot of pages that might be interesting for the researchers, e.g. about famous scientists, scientific events, academic journals, etc. Pages of different ideas might be enhanced by the links to the researches of scientists who developed those ideas and studied those concepts.

We invite our researchers to join editing and creating Wikipedia pages. The Library consultants might help you to:

  • Create/edit page of the researcher in the encyclopedia
  • Create/edit page in the category «Видання КПІ»
  • Add main works to the page of scientist
  • Add citation to the paged of particular concepts or ideas
