ORCID iDs[edit]

What can be done to encourage/assist authors to include their ORCID iDs in the bylines, and on their user pages?

More info at Wikiversity:ORCID and at en:w:WP:ORCID.

I'm Wikimedian in Residence at ORCID; please let me know if I can help. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:47, 4 May 2017 (UTC)

Andy: I strongly support the idea of users incorporating their ORCID iD in their userpages. But we need to keep it in consideration that ORCID is linked to real life identity whereas most people edit under pseudonyms. I think that prior to inclusion of ORCId it would be worthwhile to encourage users to register and edit under their real name. I think that it is only then the ice could be broken.

If someone edits under a pseudonym, there's nothing to stop them having an ORCID iD under that pseudonym. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:27, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
Huh, that's definitely not common knowledge. Using an orthnym is so typical for ORCIDs I'd never had thought to suggest it! I'll make sure to let people know. Having said that, WikiJMed currently requires publishing under the authors own name. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 12:57, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

All articles submitted in 2017 now eligible[edit]

For the best article prize, the eligibility period has been extended to all articles submitted in 2017, which makes more sense for a prize. I've updated the prize page. [1]. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:41, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

Other LG users?[edit]

Hey, who has just uploaded this?--Kopiersperre (discusscontribs) 14:59, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Kopiersperre, I don't know. Perhaps someone from that project? Anyway, I'm glad the journal is mentioned there. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:35, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikipedia inclusion[edit]

The editorial guidelines now also describe when and how to add WikiJournal content to Wikipedia: Editorial guidelines#Wikipedia inclusion. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 19:51, 12 July 2017 (UTC)


Following entry was made at Talk:WikiJournal of Medicine/Publishing, now redirecting to here. Mikael Häggström (discusscontribs) 15:39, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

As a medical editor on two wikipedias, I work hard not to do research; I've accused of it. But let's say that I do some research that is published in the Wikipedia Journal of Medicine. How is my research going to make it into the encyclopedia if I am not to include original research into articles?

Best Regards,

@Barbara (WVS): A good question. There are pretty much two paths. If the article is a review style article that doesn't include any original research (example) it can be integrated directly as its own Wikipedia page, or merged into a Wikipedia page. This is currently the more common situation. Alternatively, if the article does contain original research (example), the non-OR elements can be integrated into Wikipedia. Once the journal is PUBMED indexed, the article will also be able to be cited in a Wikipedia article as a supporting reference. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 08:09, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
