Project Icon

WikiProject Systems is a WikiProject which aims to improve Wikipedia's coverage of theory and practice of Systems and Systems science in Science and Society. As of April 2007, it seems that the articles around Systems and the Systems sciences were not especially well organized on Wikipedia by comparison with most other specialized scientific disciplines.

This project is an initiative to organize, thematize, personalize and actualize these information on Wikipedia. This project wants to offer a place to work together to initiate and coordinate these efforts.

You can help this project evolve with ideas, comments and suggestion. (Please leave a message).

15 Sept - Wikipedia 0.7 for Systems

Wikipedia 0.7 is a collection of English Wikipedia articles due to be released on DVD, and available for free download, later this year. The Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team has made an automated selection of articles for Version 0.7.

4 Aug - WikiProject Systems/Cleanup listing

Currently, 523 articles are assigned to this project, of which 156, or 29.8%, are flagged for cleanup of some sort. (Data as of 14 July 2008.) Are you interested in finding out more? User:B.

7 April - Systems science on YouTube

On YouTube an initiative has been started by Mdd to collect movies on YouTube about systems, systems science and systems scientists. See here.

15 March - Wikipedia article traffic statistics

A new tool the Wikipedia article traffic statistics seems to give an interesting view on the popularity of the systems articles. With this tool several listings have been made of number of views in systems articles in February 2008, see here.

4 March - Systems Science Portal extended

The Systems Science Portal is further extended. It now introduces 10 of the most excellent pictures, 10 images and 10 systems scientists. If you have more suggestions, please let us know here.
