Paper notes

  • If you want to help me out I would love to have some more input. It will also allow me to demonstrate how crowd sourcing can be used to develop a research paper the wiki way. (dont be afraid!!)
  • I am hopeful that I will deliver a paper based on this page to Conferences in 2012
  • Note if we want to encourage the creation of OE Research we must have papers cited. So if you do use this for your research could you add a link to your paper on the page, and/or cite either this article or the CITRENZ paper.
  • Please use -~~~~ if you add comments so I can track the effectiveness of using WikiResearcher


visitors (that's you)

As mentioned earlier, many people seem to be visiting this page. I would really like to get some idea of who is looking and why (hopefully this will lead to another paper!). If you could I would love you to add your user id (use -~~~~ ) with a brief comment. I have put one example to get you started)

If you have an Open Access account you can use it to login to WikiResearcher. If you are a wikieducator user you can link your wikiresearcher page to your wikieducator one.


More and more as researchers we are being asked to record our research. In New Zealand we have the Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF) which is a Government contestable research fund for Tertiary Institutes.
