Grants and e-Scholarships to work on open citations and WikiCite

The steering committee of WikiCite is offering two categories of finantial support (grants and e-scholarships, introduced below) which support the goals of WikiCite. WikiCite is a Wikimedia initiative to develop open citations and linked bibliographic data to serve free knowledge, which has several links with the work OpenCitations is running – i.e. the independent infrastructure organization dedicated to the publication of open bibliographic and citation data managed by the Research Centre for Open Scholarly Metadata at the University of Bologna.

Application deadline: 1 October 2020

Projects completion deadline: 1 May 2021.
