Sociology in Japan

Hi, I've been working on a new Wikipedia page Sociology in Japan. I was hoping for it to be included to the sociology wikiproject and a review. Is it possible to be included? --S.Zhang18 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 05:14, 23 October 2018 (UTC)


Wikipedia has no article on the concept of the stranger, but we have a draft well underway at Draft:Stranger, if anyone would like to work on that. Cheers! bd2412 T 03:45, 27 October 2018 (UTC)

2000s in sociology, etc.

I'm probably not going to monitor this discussion; I'm just trying to determine if it was intended.

There are a lot of publication entries with both the author and the name of the book redlinked. Many projects would reject such entries in their timelines. I don't know if this project wants to discuss the issue. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 03:25, 28 October 2018 (UTC)

Campbell Collaboration collaboration

posted at WT:LAW, WT:PLT and WT:SOCIO

The Campbell collaboration (sister group to the Cochrane collaboration are possibly interested in forming a collaboration to use their systematic reviews of policy interventions to help update Wikipedia (analagous to Cochrane's medical meta-analyses). WP:MED already has a collaboration with Cochrane, so Campbell could be a good fit. Let me know if you'd like to be part of the email thread following up on this.

Featured quality source review RFC

Editors in this WikiProject may be interested in the featured quality source review RFC that has been ongoing. It would change the featured article candidate process (FAC) so that source reviews would need to occur prior to any other reviews for FAC. Your comments are appreciated. --IznoRepeat (talk) 21:46, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Notable female sociologists lacking a Wikipedia article

While investigating a new article for Dr. Susan Myra Kingsbury, I chanced upon the following paper:

  • Luo, Wei; Adams, Julia; Brueckner, Hannah (2018), "The Ladies Vanish?", Comparative Sociology, 17 (5): 519–556, doi:10.1163/15691330-12341471

It specifically mentions certain women lacking articles on Wikipedia. Just thought it might be of interest. Thanks. Praemonitus (talk) 18:37, 19 November 2018 (UTC)

Among women sociologists referred to in the article:
... Some (in many cases, quite recent) progress being made... DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 07:49, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

WikiJournal of Humanities published first article

The WikiJournal of Humanities is a free, peer reviewed academic journal which aims to provide a new mechanism for ensuring the accuracy of Wikipedia's humanities, arts and social sciences content. We started it as a way of bridging the Wikipedia-academia gap. It is also part of a WikiJournal User Group along with Wiki.J.Med and Wiki.J.Sci. The journal is still starting out and not yet well known, so we are advertising ourselves to WikiProjects that might be interested.


  • Invite submissions from non-wikipedians
  • Coordinate the organisation of external academic peer review
  • Format accepted articles
  • Promote the journal


  • New Wikipedia articles on topics that don't yet have a Wikipedia page, or only a stub/start
  • Existing Wikipedia articles to be externally peer reviewed (analogous to GA / FA review - see submission page)
  • Image articles, based around an important images, photographs or summary diagrams

If you want to know more, please see this recent interview with some WikiJournal editors, the journal's About page, or check out a comparison of similar initiatives. If you're interested, please come and discuss the project on the journal's talk page, or the general discussion page for the WikiJournal User group.

As an illustrative example, Wiki.J.Hum published its first article this month!

I added Quotaism to this project as it appears relevant but also low quality and possibly overlapping with articles such as affirmative action. If this was inappropriate please feel free to remove the project. MegaSloth (talk) 09:57, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
