Wikimedia Research

Wikimedia Research is a team of scientists and engineers using data to understand and empower millions of readers and contributors who interact with Wikipedia and its sister projects on a daily basis. site

We turn research questions into publicly shared knowledge. We design and test new technology, produce empirical insights to support new products and programs, and publish research informing the organization’s and the movement’s strategy.

We are strongly committed to principles of transparency, privacy, and open collaboration. We collaborate with a network of researchers in the industry and academia, and publish all our output in the open.


Wikimedia Research is the best addition to wiki since the talk page. Their email list is the one source I read regularly. This new resource site will make an outstanding complement to that conversation.
