Revision history [back]

Hi! There are several ways that you can find a good article to work on! We also have a module that can help you find an article, which you can find here.

One of the first things you should do is look at the topics you're studying in class. Are there any major topics that stand out to you? Any terms? Try looking them up on Wikipedia to see if they have an article. If so, could the article be improved and expanded? If not, are there enough sources out there that cover the topic to justify a new article?

You can also find article ideas by looking through category pages. You can find categories at the bottom of an article. Clicking on a category will bring up a page containing all of the articles that have that specific category on their page. For example, the article on business ethics is also in the category "business ethics". Clicking on this will bring up a variety of articles that you could select. One caution about choosing articles - the more complete they are, the harder it might be to find a way to expand and improve it.

Finally, you can also find ideas on the requested pages section on Wikipedia, which is broken down by topic area. These are articles suggested by others, so some of these may not meet Wikipedia's notability guidelines, but it's still a good place to look for ideas.

I hope this helps!
