Wikimania 2016 - Verifiability of Wikipedia by Alex Stinson
From Ewan McAndrew
This talk examines the changing landscape of Wikipedia's need for citation, verification, and other kinds of authoritative sources, to answer the question "Why are Wikipedia's interest in Verifiability so important for our community and outreach?" I will provide some high level overview of how sources came to be so important in various Wikipedias, recent research on the value and impact of our current citations, and community programs that focus on the importance of citations, such as the Wikipedia Library, it's #1lib1ref campaign and Wikicite 2016.
