can you make it possible in exchange with developers of Wikidata to easy integrate a Book from Zotero to Wikidata please? So People can use Bookitems there to cite content. Sample [1] .

Thank you,

  • Find https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata%3AProject_chat&type=revision&diff=220492608&oldid=220459679 .
  • I doubt we'll have the resources for that, but at this point I don't even understand what that would entail, to be honest, and your Wikidata chat post has too much site-specific jargon for me to follow, so you'd have to explain that in laypersons terms a bit more.
  • Both wikidata and zotero have a very good API, so maybe some kind of workflow integration is possible. However, I do not understand either what you are exactly trying to do. Conny, maybe you can explain your example in further details? Feel free to write in German.
  • Thank you for your comments. I try to explain more in detail: In Wikidata an Item can be a book (f. e. [1]). The Item contains statements to describe (instance of book, publisher, ISBN, ...). Later this Item can be used to cite another statement in another Item (f. e. [2]).

    In [2] there is a crucible furnace defined (via statement) as a part of foundry (this is not a very good sample, it is a test for referencing). This statement can be cited via [1] with more details as you can read (stated in, chapter, page, ...).

    I wished it would be easyier to create [1] out of my zotero library - but maybe it makes more sense to get data via Worldcat. Taking data from Worldcat into Zotero (works at this time) and than create easy Wikidata-Item would be fine for me.

    The linked discussion on Wikidata is a feature request, also for easyier creating an Item. If I state book I wished there would appear other relevant statements as a proposal for my filling - that would be obsolete, if there is a way to click an item out of my Zotero Library :D .

    There are also some guys working on this [3] , maybe that can help?

    Thank you, Conny...

  • Do you have any experience (or some other guys at wikidata) with javascript coding? I could imagine a ad-hoc workflow with the Client API form Zotero:

    1) Select an item in Zotero
    2) Take some informations in Javascript (e.g. in the browser console, bookmarklet), e.g. the title
    3) Do something with these information along the Wikidata API/functions.

    (I haven't looked closely at [3].)
  • Maybe some of the guys allready did some userscripts [1] ...

  • There is a tool called QuickStatements [1] to add content via a command line. It uses WiDaR [2] - maybe this is interessting for the described task wish :D .

  • Any interessted people out there?
  • There's an upcoming workshop/hackathon in Berlin this May on this and related topics. Both zuphilip and I are going to be there. Are you by any chance?
  • We now have such a tool in test [1], thanks to @zuphilip. As suggested above, it outputs commands for QuickStatements (which itself is undergoing active development [2])
