About the Wikipedia project
STS Wiki does not seek to duplicate Wikipedia's role in providing encyclopedia-type articles covering STS-related topics. However, Wikipedia articles are, or should be, written for a general audience. A project is underway to copy Wikipedia content to STS Wiki and expand it with a specialized readership in mind.
To participate, do the following:
- Choose a Wikipedia article to port to STS Wiki. (See below for a list.)
- Place a link to the article in one of the following STS Wiki pages: STS concepts, STS methods, or STS theories, and save the page.
- Click the link to create the new page.
- Copy the Wikipedia content to the new page, and save the page. (Doing so creates a record of the text copied from Wikipedia.)
- Edit the links by adding Wikipedia: (example: [[Wikipedia:relativism]], unless you believe that STS Wiki should contain such an article.
- Important: add the following at the bottom of the page: Some of the text on this page was copied from Wikipedia (see this page's first version in the history tab). This text is licensed under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL).
- If appropriate, edit the Wikipedia article to link back out to the STS article, usually from the External Links section.
As always, we encourage STS Wiki authors to contribute material to Wikipedia for a general readership. The following list notes pages and areas that need work.
- wikipedia:Science and technology studies Needs references, major revision
- wikipedia:Science studies Major revision; needs references
- wikipedia:Social construction of technology Needs references, expansion of discussion of theory
- wikipedia:Actor network theory Needs references, examples, expansion
