Wikiproject Open Access on Wikidata
After the English Wikipedia and the English Wikisource, WikiProject now has a presence on Wikidata as well: Wikidata:WikiProject Open Access. It aims to improve information related to open access across Wikimedia projects and through Wikidata, to facilitate the reuse of open-access materials on Wikimedia projects, and to signal the openness of references used on Wikimedia projects. Its focus is on Wikidata items related to Open Access as well as on Wikidata properties relating to media files, licenses, publications and repositories.
