General instructions

The planned workload for the Wiki project is approximately 40 hours.

There are two possible ways to complete the Wiki project:

1. Create a completely new Wiki page.

  • List of possible Wiki project topics contains some suggestions.
  • You can also suggest your own topic. For example: Synthesis method, characterization method, some interesting solid-state material, etc.

2. Revise one or more existing Wiki pages.

  • Have a look at some of the existing pages. If there is a topic that interests you and you think you will be able to significantly improve the existing page, this is a very good target for your project.
  • You may revise several existing pages if you want.
  • Creating new high-quality figures is very valuable work.
  • All figures added/changed during the revision must be compatible with the open access licensing of this Wiki (please see below).
