== Key details of this literature review ==
* We describe the methodology in detail in a [ working paper].* We focus include '''only on research on about [ Wikipedia]''', not on about any other [ wiki] or any other [ Wikimedia Foundation project].
* We focused mainly on peer-reviewed journal articles (over 300) and PhD dissertations (over 25), and have systematically sought to include these. It is a huge project, and we had to draw a limit to what we would mainly focus on.
* We have identified over 1,500 conference papers which we [[List of conference papers|list with their abstracts]]. However, in our detailed analysis we have included only 70 or so of the most highly-cited conference papers. Because of our limited time and resources, unfortunately we were unable to analyze more than that in detail. However, we can certainly do detailed analysis of any important conference papers that we left out--please point them out!
* Our cut-off date for inclusion is We do not include any items published after June 2011, after which the [ Wikimedia Research Newsletter] was formally inaugurated; we're letting them pick up from where we stop.
* We have submitted a [ presentation proposal for Wikimania 2012].
* Please point out any peer-reviewed journal articles or PhD dissertations we have missed that were published before July 2011; we will certainly add these.
* Please point out any other scholarly studies (especially conference articles and significant non-peer-reviewed work) that you feel should definitely be analyzed in detail. Although we have [[List of conference papers|listed 1,500 conference papers]], our limited time and resources only permits us to analyze a fraction of them in detail. So, please help us highlight the most important ones that we have not analyzed in detail, with a brief explanation of why they are particularly important.
* Please add any scholarly studies about Wikipedia that we have left out! Our restrictions in what we include are purely pragmatic due to time and resource limitations. If you want to add anything that we say that we don't have the time to do ourselves, please feel free to do so! Please add your own research and those of others that you know well. However, if you add a new article, please be sure to ***'''fill all input fields'''***, since we will generally exclude any article with incomplete need complete data in for our final analysis.* Please suggest any data analysis or visualizations you would like to see as we synthesize and present the data.* Please give any other feedback or suggestion suggestions that can help us make this dataset more useful to researchers!
The data is publicly available (the license is CC-BY-SA ***dual?***, except for copyrighted abstracts), but this is a beta release and there are probably a lot of errors. We hope to have a stable and very clean dataset within a couple months, both from community help and from our own internal quality control processes; we'll make another announcement when we feel it has reached "featured" quality. '''In particular, please wait a bit before exporting the data to other research collection websites and wikis until it is in a cleaner state'''; by then, we'll help make it available in as many export formats as practical.No later than May 31, 2012, we hope that this dataset will have attained exportable quality. (If this notice has not been updated by that date, then please contact us at wikilit - at - to ask for the current status.)
