This wiki is already an awesome resource, and we have plans to make it even better. Those of us who carry out this work are all volunteers, and we welcome anyone else who is willing to help. Some of the contributions we need are detailed below, along with other opportunities to help us improve this site.

Help we need[edit]

MediaWiki expertise[edit]

Do you have experience with MediaWiki sites that we could call on as required?

Checking and updating research links[edit]

We currently need volunteers to help improve the experience of visitors to our Research page by checking citations that currently only have an abstract link, to see whether free full texts of these papers have become available since their abstracts were listed and, if they have, to add the full text links to the page.

This work is needed because some publishers only release an abstract when they first publish a paper, embargoing the full text copy for many months. This practice means that we have to go back over our list of studies periodically and check the availability of full text versions where these are not currently included in our list.

How to get involved in this project is explained in the Full text links section of our Helminthic Therapy Wiki Volunteer Forum, where you can also ask any questions and get help with the task.
