THE FEEDBACK LOOP – THE VISIBLE VS. THE INVISIBLE 2. become more visible (e.g. in Google)

1. Things that are more visible (e.g. on Wikipedia)…. 5. and more written about (e.g. on Wikipedia: and now Instant Feedback you have a media source!) Loop. • 4. and therefore The rich get richer more visible (to and the poor may the public) disappear entirely.

3. and more written about (e.g. in the press)

Why is this important? “Knowledge creates understanding – understanding is sorely lacking in today’s world.” Katherine Maher, Executive Director Wikimedia Foundation December 2016.

Original Research:

★Topic should meet Wiki’s standards of notability ★No original research “verifiability not truth” ★Avoid conflict of interest

Things to bear in mind.

This refers to material – such as facts, allegations and ideas – for which no reliable, published sources exist. This includes any analysis or synthesis of published material that serves to reach or imply a conclusion not the By JZ85stated (Own work)by [GFDL ( sources. or CC BY-SA 3.0

( y-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Avoid accusations of conflict of interest & ‘sock puppetry’.’

• Wikipedia is based on reliable, published sources with a reputation for fact-checking & accuracy.

So, if available, academic & peer-reviewed • Academic and peer-reviewed publications are usually the most reliable sources. scholarly material is often used.

Other reliable sources include: WHAT’S A • University-level textbooks • Books published by respected publishing houses RELIABLE • Magazines • Journals SOURCE? • Mainstream newspapers

• High quality mainstream publications also. • Internet blogs are not considered reliable whereas BBC/CNN tend to be thought of as reliable. • If no reliable sources can be found on a topic then Wikipedia should not have an article on it.
