How to Create a Wikipedia Article

Watch more How to Use Internet Search & Web Browsers videos:

Share your expertise on a subject by writing about it for Wikipedia, the world’s biggest encyclopedia. This multilingual, Web-based, free content encyclopedia already contains millions of articles, but there’s always room for something new. Why not publish something by you?

Step 1: Have the right topic
Before you try to create an article, make sure you have an appropriate topic. Wikipedia wants unbiased, well-sourced information about subjects that are notable enough to appear in an encyclopedia. The site rejects articles that promote or publicize a business; advice – legal, medical or otherwise; instructional material; travel guides; and news items.

Get ideas for topics by typing WP:RA in the search box; a list of articles requested by others will appear.

Step 2: Source your work
Make sure you get the information for your article from a credible, reliable source. Material in books and newspapers is generally considered reliable; the musings of bloggers are not. And don’t bother writing about yourself; it’s considered a conflict of interest.

Detailed instructions on the proper way to cite sources can be found by typing WP:CITE into the search box and hitting “Go.”

Step 3: Conduct an internal search
Make sure Wikipedia hasn’t already published an article on your exact subject by typing it into the site’s internal search engine. Search as many variations of the topic name as you can think of, including common misspellings of relevant terms.

Click “Search” to find Wikipedia articles that just mention your subject.

Step 4: Google it
Search the topic on Google to see if it finds any Wikipedia articles on your subject. Google sometimes picks up postings that Wikipedia’s own search engine misses.

Step 5: Sign up
Become a registered user to submit an article without first gaining the site’s approval. Having an account also means you can create a user profile, receive messages from other users, request notification for changes made to articles, and, of course, get credit for the articles you write. Click on “create an account” at the top right of any page.

If you’d prefer not to register, submit a proposal through Wikipedia’s Articles for Creation, an online review process that provides feedback on your idea. Type WP:AFC in a Search box and hit “Go.”

Step 6: Practice writing
Practice writing an article by composing a draft in the Sandbox, where you can familiarize yourself with the site’s editing tools. Get there by typing WP:SB in the Search box and hitting, “Go.” Click “Help” in the toolbox to the left of any page for guidance.

Step 7: Enter the article
Type your subject in a Search box and hit “Go.” You’ve already determined that no page with that title exists. Click on your highlighted search entry. You’ll be redirected to a blank page where you can begin writing your article.

Wikipedia editors may request more sources from you after reviewing your article.

Step 8: Publish!
When your article is finished, hit “Show Preview” to proofread your work and see how it will appear on the site. When you’re ready to publish it, hit “Save Page.” Congratulations! You’re a Wikipedian!

Did You Know?
Wikipedia has published articles in more than 250 languages.

How to Edit a Wikipedia Article

Watch more How to Use Internet Search & Web Browsers videos:

Eager to add your expertise to an article on Wikipedia, the free, online encyclopedia that’s one of the world’s most visited websites? Follow these helpful hints to edit your first article.

Step 1: Consider opening an account
If you’re not already a registered Wikipedia user, consider becoming one. If you edit a piece without registering, the site will record your IP address publicly in the article’s edit history. With an account, you can also start new pages and upload images. To register, click “create account” at the top right of any page.

Step 2: Edit text
To get started, click on the “edit this page” tab at the top of the page. This will bring you to a new page with a text box containing the editable text of the original page. Just start typing! Get help at any time by clicking the link “Help” in the toolbox on the left of any page.

If you don’t see an “edit this page” tab at the top, it means the page is protected from editing, probably because of a high incidence of malicious changes.

Step 3: Open only what you need
If you’re making just a small change in one part of the article, look for the “edit” link on the right side of each section, and click on the one next to the passage you want to revise. This allows you to make changes in one section without opening the whole article.

Use the tool bar above the way you would with any word processing program. Don’t worry about strange punctuation marks that might appear; this is just Wikipedia formatting your copy.

Step 4: Source your work
If you’re adding new information, be sure to provide reliable sources that verify your work, or it will likely be deleted. Detailed instructions on the proper way to cite sources can be found by typing WP:CITE into the search box and hitting “Go.”

Material in books and newspapers generally is considered reliable; the musings of bloggers are not. And don’t bother writing about yourself; it’s considered a conflict of interest.

Step 5: Explain your edit
Briefly explain your changes in the “Edit summary” box at the bottom. Your explanation can run up to 200 characters.

Step 6: Review your changes
Review your changes by hitting the “Show preview” tab at the bottom. If you want to compare your changes to the text you altered, hit the “Show changes” button. Once you’re satisfied with your work, hit the “Save page” button.

Step 7: Check it out
Check out your contribution, which will appear instantly. But be aware that if there are any inaccuracies in your text, someone will soon be editing you. Wikipedia saves all versions, and anyone can view them.

If you have an account, click the “watch” tab to track changes made to the article. On the “My watchlist” page, click “diff,” to see exactly what has been changed

Step 8: Look for your work
Keep an eye on the featured content on Wikipedia’s front page; the article — with your improvements — may show up there someday!

Did You Know?
Seventy-five percent of Wikipedia edits are made by two percent of users.
