In this session we'll give a hands-on introduction to Wikidata and the creation, curation and extraction of structured data about scholarly works, authors, institutions (part of the WikiCite initiative). You'll learn about the Wikidata data model and make your first edits. You'll learn how to populate a Wikidata entry from a DOI or an ORCID and how to retrieve and visualize data in SPARQL via the Wikidata Query Service. No prior knowledge of Wikidata or Wikimedia projects is required.
