Thanks for your research, from Wikipedia articles

Dear Dr. Federico Leva,

Thanks in turn! I will ask my colleagues at AIAS / UPITEC and the National Library of Wales to look in to this helpful suggestion. Our combined sites and are openly accessible and are archived on and, As can be seen from the attached table of page views per month per author, we are the most influential institute in the world at present in terms of accurate contemporary scientometrics.

Dear MW Evans,

thank you for your research and for advancing public knowledge about your field! We think you’ll be interested in knowing that the English Wikipedia references your work (doi:10.1007/s10702-005-7535-5).

As you know, Wikipedia strives for neutrality and verifiability: all are free to edit, insofar they summarise suitable published information and points of view, so that every reader can study the topic further and revise or expand the articles as needed. If we want the public to exercise critical thinking and grow knowledge, we need such scientific literature to be freely available, in Open Access. It’s already possible to make all the scientific literature just one click away for everybody from Wikipedia articles, but we need the authors’ help.

In fact, your publications could be archived in an open repository according to their journal’s policies, but they were not yet (according to SHERPA/RoMEO and available metadata). The good news is that you can now make all your works freely available for everybody with few clicks, thanks to Zenodo (hosted by CERN): you only have to search Dissemin for your name and upload the PDF files for all the publications which can be archived, while the system takes care of filling the metadata.

The Dissemin page about each work contains more information and links on the policies which allow you to upload a copy. Dissemin will ask you to login via ORCID: your institution has probably already provided you with an ORCID account, but if not you can easily signup and create your unique author identity.

To integrate with free knowledge resources, “libre” Open Access helps: at Wikimedia we prefer the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike (CC BY-SA) license, or the CC BY. For more information, we recommend the SPARC Open Access website and Peter Suber’s how-to.

We hope you will use Dissemin today to reach a wider audience.

Kind regards,
Federico Leva for Wikimedia Italia

P.s.: If you reply with comments or questions, we’ll forward to a group of field experts who will help. This message is sent to your address as relevant feedback about the publication which provided it. Dissemin is run by the independent CAPSH association.
