WikiData is the massively powerful database behind Wikipedia.
It contains objects, identified with a Q:
Q12345; it also contains properties, identified with a P:
In creating content, it can help to easily insert stable references to crucial aspects of methodologies. For example, if I use a
z-test to analyse my data, I could reference Q897827 in my methods section.
After being created this way, consumption could be facilitated by providing translations. For example, for Q897827 the english version is
z-test, the German version
Gauß test, and the French version
Test Z. This might help improve accessibility.
Other options include providing identifiers for modules posted by people. For example, a hypothesis module could directly be identified using Q41719 in the metadata.
I would love to discuss this further and see what value using WikiData can add to content. How to implement the production of content can be discussed too.
