Wikisource:WikiProject Open Access/Programmatic import from PubMed Central

This page hosts some tests for automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles from PubMed Central. The first ten of these have been chosen because they have been cited more than 10 times on the English Wikipedia.

Phylogenetic tree of marsupials derived from retroposon data.

Primary reasons to incorporate these articles with WikiSource:

  • Signalling that a given reference has a mediawiki-marked-up copy on Wikisource is a clear indication of OA-ness
  • Providing full text, with in-context images, video, audio, and other media facilitates improving Wikipedia as a deep, rich, "free" as in "freedom" reference work.
  • Uploading source content including text, images, and other media closer to time of publication reduces the barrier to entry to cite academic works in Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects.
  • Providing access to scholarly materials in the developing world through Wikipedia Zero, which now includes Wikisource.

Hi. Not sure this is the right place for feedback. There are a couple of wrong section headings in the article. Did not fix them so you can take a look and fix your bot. Bye--Mpaa (talk) 12:12, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. We're still working on fixes of this kind, as per #Bugs. -- Daniel Mietchen (talk) 17:30, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
