This grant provides three years of support for gatherings of WikiCite, a project within the Wikipedia ecosystem designed to both improve citation within Wikipedia and to expand the Wikidata project in ways useful to the scientific community. Grant funds will support a dedicated annual WikiCite meeting, as well as a series of smaller satellite meetings at other Wikimedia events. The organizers will also maintain a strong presence at other scholarly communication meetings, bringing the energy and technical sophistication of the Wikimedia community to bear on innovation in scholarly communication more broadly.
