Welcome to the WikiProject Dominican Republic! This project is aimed to highlight the Dominican Republic and Dominican society's history. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians. If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and check the to-do list.

For more information on WikiProjects, please see Wikipedia:WikiProjects and Wikipedia:WikiProject best practices.



This project will encompass all aspects of the Dominican Republic and its people. Culture, history, politics, business, sports, etc. These articles should all be contained within the Category:Dominican Republic or one of its subcategories.


  1. To create a body of articles that accurately depicts the history and culture of the Dominican Republic and Dominicans.
  2. To highlight the Dominican Republic's relationships and contributions to the rest of the world.
  3. To standardize articles on the Dominican Republic or Dominican subjects. They should have similar layouts, formatting, etc.
  4. To include all relevant information, making especially certain to include the voices of women, the poor, the indigenous, and basically all the rest of the Dominican society (providing the info. is sourced, of course).
  5. To standardize the use of Spanish-language terms, names, and translations into English across the series.

Adopt an articleEdit

Similar to the Collaboration of the week, but on a smaller scale, you might want to "adopt" an article. This would involve doing the research, writing, and picture-taking (if possible) for either a non-existent article or a stub. Of course, everyone else can still edit an adopted article, and you can work on other things too, but the idea is to find a focus for a while, to try and build up the number of quality articles the Project has produced.

Image requestsEdit

In addition to posting your image requests here, on the talk page(s) of the subject(s), and on the Wikimedia Commons (Commons:Commons:Picture requests), please also post them at es:Wikipedia:Imágenes solicitadas on the Spanish Wikipedia. If you do not know Spanish, you can ask someone at es:Wikipedia:Embajadas to help you.
