WelcomeEdit

Bot This user account is a bot operated by Daniel Mietchen (talk). It is part of the Open Access Media Importer that crawls scholarly publication databases (starting with PubMed Central) for supplementary audio and video materials and uploads them (19196 files so far) to Wikimedia Commons if they are available under licenses compatible with such reuse. The code is reusably licensed and can be found on GitHub.

It is not a sock puppet, but rather an automated or semi-automated account for making repetitive edits that would be extremely tedious to do manually.
Administrators: if this bot is malfunctioning or causing harm, please block it.

OverviewEdit

An interview about the project

Technical detailsEdit

Uploads by the Open Access Media Importer to Wikimedia Commons between July 2012 and November 2014. The current number of uploaded files stands at 19196. See also Commons:MIME type statistics, Special:TimedMediaHandler and the OGV trajectory on the Commons Report Card.

NotesEdit

  • The delay between publication of an article and it being indexed in PubMed Central varies between a few days and a few months (not counting embargoes, which do not apply to Wikimedia-compatibly licensed content anyway), sometimes even years (e.g. for back issues of newly indexed journals).
  • Most articles indexed in PubMed Central are not in the Open Access Subset. For an idea how many articles are indexed in the Open Access Subset on a given day, see the data for March 1.
  • Most articles in the Open Access Subset are not licensed compatibly with reuse on Wikimedia Commons.
  • Only a small minority of the suitably licensed articles in the Open Access Subset have audio or video files associated with them.
  • The delay between a suitably licensed article being indexed in the Open Access Subset and its video and audio materials being uploaded here is typically around a day or two, but can in rare cases be hours or years.
  • The usefulness and completeness of the information used for file conversion, descriptions and categories varies by publisher, journal, article and file. Some more details here.
