This month, the Open Access Reader started, which aims to bring significant information contained in Open Access publications over to relevant Wikimedia platforms.
Cite-o-Meter got facelift
The Cite-o-Meter is a tool to visualize how many Wikipedia pages are citing CrossRef DOIs that have been issued by different publishers (examples: PLOS, Elsevier). It also allows to rank publishers by citations from a given Wikipedia (examples: en, vi) or from Wikimedia Commons. It got a facelift this month using D3 for better visualization.
Since December 1, 2011, an Open Access File of the Day has been posted on a daily basis to highlight the variety of open access materials that are being used on Wikimedia projects. Due to limited volunteer time, this activity has been suspended this month until further notice. If you see a way to take this up again, please contact WikiProject Open Access. The following files have been featured as Open Access File of the Day this month:
The following represents a selection of the files that have been uploaded by the Open Access Media Importer this month, bringing the total to about 17,500. If you can think of wiki pages where these files could be useful, please put them in there or let us know.
