The Current Goa Collaboration seeks to identify particular articles that would benefit from a significant collaborative effort. Every week, a single article is selected as the focus, and the project attempts to improve it, potentially to featured article standards.

Any articles dealing with some aspect of Goa (except for current featured articles and featured article candidates) are eligible, and everyone is invited to nominate articles.
