This year, the Wikimedia Foundation and SPARC have launched a major initiative to disseminate information about Open Access. By calling for a public edit-a-thon, they hope to increase the available information about Open Access dramatically.
We want the community to be part of this global initiative ... and we need your help!
The English Wikipedia page on Open Access has a lot of great information. However, the Arabic Wikipedia page on the same topic is really basic.
We want to change that, and plan to improve the Arabic Wikipedia page. Since the page is too long for a single person to tackle alone, we want you to contribute.
How it works
2. We'll assign a short section of the English page to you, and send you a link to a shared document.
3. You summarize the content of your assigned section (in Arabic).
.... That's it. Don't worry about the rest. Librarians at AUC will review and polish the content and language of all sections, assemble the article in Arabic, and submit it for review to Arabic Wikipedia. Your contribution will be not be marked, but contributor names will be listed in the notes section of the article.
