MQ This week: Have you ever noticed this about Wikipedia?

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Recently, Macquarie’s Dr Melanie Zeppel (pictured, left) joined a ‘Wikithon’ organised by Franklin Women – a professional community for women working in the health and medical research field. Melanie describes them as “an amazing group of supportive and inspiring women lifting each other up and inspiring careers for diverse groups”.

The aim of the Wikithon was to create as many Wikipedia profiles of prominent women in STEMM as possible.

Melanie had never edited a Wikipedia page before (her day job involves researching genomic medicine at Macquarie’s GenIMPACT research centre) and she says she found the writing style very different to the grant applications she usually writes.
