The Royal Society of Chemistry is a learned society and professional body for chemical scientists. With 48,000 members and a knowledge business that spans the globe, the RSC is a not-for-profit organisation with 170 years of history. Its mission it to work to shape the future of the chemical sciences – for the benefit of science and humanity.
As a result of a discussion between John Cummings, our recent Wikimedian-in-Residence at the Natural History Museum and Science Museum, and staff members of the Royal Society of Chemistry, this collaborative event between the Society and WMUK will take place on Friday 28 March 2014 at Burlington House, the London home of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
The event will involve basic Wikipedia training for beginners, followed by an editing session focused on improving articles related to the chemical sciences and notable scientists.
This free event is open to the public but places are limited. To apply for a free space at the event please email the Society with your name, Society membership number (if applicable), why you are interested in the workshop and, most importantly, what would you like to get out of the day. The registration process closes on Sunday 16 February.
