Wiki workshop focusing on potential women publishers on March 3 & 4 at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences.
"Wikimedia and Wikipedia are at hand of citizens and citizen scientists – however, it seems that fewer women dare to publish and get hold of the tool than men do...
Through this workshop, we would like to present the work from wiki users and provide training about this tool towards the COST action community and the community of citizen science practitioners. Our goal is also to encourage women by disinhibiting them so that they give visibility to their research by publishing it and making it available to all."
