Contribute to Wikipedia!

seminars, workshops |

Publish information on Wikipedia – and you will reach exactly those who are interested in your subject. It is easy and fun!

For PhD students and junior researchers at the department of Ecology and Crop Production Ecology.
We welcome other people too just as long as the workshop is not full. And we are happy to arrange another workshóp if needed.


  • Fika and introduction by Olle Terenius, researcher and Wikipedia ambassador (ca 15 minutes)
  • Create an account with SLU profile
  • Work with Wikipedia. Olle Terenius and Anna Lundmark will support you.

Before the workshop

  • Make a list of five keywords connected to your research. Are there any articles about these words on Wikipedia? What should be changed? What could you add? (Work with Wikipedia in your native language and English)
  • Do you have good illustrations/photos that you could contribute with?
  • Do you have popular scientific texts (press releases, fact sheets etc) from which you can re-use text at Wikipedia?

Sign up no later than 2 October.

SLU is part of the Wikipedia project since 2013. The goal is that researchers shall contribute to Wikipedia to make their research more visible and Wikipedia more useful. Apart from that it is an easy way to meet the communication criteria – it could be useful when you apply for funding.
