This session, part of our Moore Methods training programme, will introduce participants to the ideas of working openly and reproducibly through presenting case studies and tools to help facilitate this kind of work. From GitHub to good file naming conventions, participants will be given the opportunity to learn from other people’s failures and to be better at future-proofing their research.

The session will predominantly be presentation and discussion based with some time at the end for some 1-2-1 focused help from library staff.

While the session has a STEM focus, it is open to all University members. Booking not required but is strongly encouraged so we have an idea of numbers.

Since its foundation in 2012, Wikidata, the database attached to Wikipedia, has grown steadily. It started life as an index to all Wikipedias, across hundreds of languages. It has become one of the most active sites in the constellation realising the concept of “semantic Web”. It is also easy to edit, and is a versatile resource with numerous applications. The talk element of this session will touch briefly on major aspects of Wikidata and some of the ways it is used, with an additional Q&A section. There will also be a free sandwich lunch.

After the initial talk, there will be a 2 hour hands-on session to help you understand more about how Wikidata works. Please bring your own device and sign up for a Wikipedia account before the session.
