Wikipedia Editing

Help improve representation of mass spectrometry on Wikipedia in two simple steps:

  1. Create a Wikipedia account (if you don’t have one already): Use the “Create account” link in the top right corner on the Wikipedia main page. Choose your username with care—you do not have to be identifiable.
  2. Start editing! Find an article from the List of Female Mass Spectrometrists and begin to edit.

Please don’t edit or create an article about yourself, a close friend, colleague, collaborator, or your employer—this would be considered a conflict of interest on Wikipedia.

Until June 18, 2022, join the FeMS Edit-a-thon Dashboard: Sign in with your Wikipedia account. Click on “Join program” in the bottom right of the page. This Dashboard helps track our collective edits and measure our impact as we edit together around the world. It also has links to training videos and documents.
