Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Biography WikiProject concerns the creation, development, and organization of Wikipedia's articles about persons (including but not limited to biographies). It includes only articles about individual persons, not about an organization or group or association, unless a substantial section of the article is a biography of a person related to that organization or group. It includes biographies of only real humans; thus, the project does not cover other animals or fictitious persons (such as pseudonyms) or fictional characters. As of 1 October 2023, there are 1,982,192 articles and 7,345 lists within the scope of WikiProject Biography, of which 1,807 are featured and 7,861 are good articles. As of 12 November 2022 according to WHGI and based on wikidata, only 370,412 of Wikipedia's 1,911,715 biographies are about women, amounting to 19.376%.

The assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's biography articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WPBiography}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in a set of categories that serves as the basis for an automatically generated worklist.

Peer review[edit]

The peer review department conducts peer reviews of articles on request; this helps to obtain ideas for further improvement by having contributors who may not have previously worked on particular articles examine them. Project members are invited to submit articles to the department in lieu of using the generic peer review process.

Unreferenced BLPs[edit]

5 random unreferenced BLPs, updated daily: Lee Wochner | Hamish McKay | DJ Klever | Stanislav Kriventsov | Rob DesLauriers

Inactive departments[edit]

A-class review: A-class review examined articles to ensure they met the A-class standards. Currently, there is a freeze on promotions to A-class.

Collaboration: The collaboration department sought to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. A single article was selected as the focus, and the project attempted to improve it, potentially to featured article standard.

Outreach: The outreach department acted as the project's central point of coordination for the recruitment of new members and the production of newsletters.

Work groups[edit]

Please discuss any proposals for new work groups with the project as a whole before creating them.

Workgroups are informal groups of editors gathered for collaborative work on a particular topic within the field of biography; all project members are encouraged to participate in any that interest them. Also included below are other WikiProjects that fall within our scope.

Work groups

Comprehensive lists of Women who require Wikipedia biographies are available from the Women in Red WikiProject.
