STUDENTS WE NEED YOU – join Students 4 Best Evidence (S4BE) and help update health evidence on Wikipedia!

Project_Leaflet_WikiProject_Medicine_back_and_front_va122We are planning an exciting week (15th-19th September) of blogs, resources and tutorials, culminating in a LIVE Wiki Editathon, online and at the UK Cochrane Centre on the 16th September.

Cochrane has recently joined forces with Wikipedia in a partnership to get more Cochrane health evidence on Wikipedia. To celebrate this, we at S4BE want to get students involved in this partnership as we know Wikipedia is a key student resource.

Throughout Wiki Week, we will be publishing blogs on:

Wiki Editathon (launching on 16th September Noon 12.00 PM BST):

  • In person in Oxford at the UK Cochrane Centre and online using Google Hangout on the 16th
  • Wiki training: experienced Wikipedians will be joining us to provide support for students new to Wiki
  • Group work: working on a selection of interesting and new Cochrane reviews that we will help pre-pick
  • A prize…
  • and lunch for those coming in person!

For further information about the week and the Editathon:
