Wikipedia is increasingly used by university students for
"pre-research", to gain context and explore ideas for course
assignments and research projects
[1]. Yet many among scientists,
academics and other experts are reluctant to contribute to Wikipedia,
despite a growing number of calls from the scientific community to
join the project .

The Wikimedia Research Committee has just launched a survey to
understand why scientists, academics and other experts do (or do not)
contribute to Wikipedia and other collaborative projects, and whether
individual motivation aligns with shared perceptions of Wikipedia
within expert communities. We hope this may help us identify ways
around barriers to expert participation. The survey is anonymous and
takes about 20 min to complete. Please help us circulate the link
among your colleagues and collaborators:
