Grants:IdeaLab/Increasing health care contributors
Project idea edit
What is the problem you're trying to solve? edit
How to increase the number of contributors to health-related and medical content. Why have editors numbers fallen between 2008 and 2013 on English Wikipedia? Why are 80% of editors male and 10% female? Why do people edit Wikipedia? Why don't people edit Wikipedia?
What is your solution? edit
We are interested in raising awareness about the need for editors in health-related Wikipedia. Our aim would be to invite/find people who would think editing Wikipedia is fun. Are there any markers (e.g. character traits) that are more likely to predict a future Wikipedian?
Have 300 hundred editors participate and 10 still participating after 6 months.
