Improve on Existing Articles

There are two types of improvement: minor improvements and major improvements.

- Minor improvements involve correcting spelling errors, grammatical errors, and factual errors in articles. This type of improvement also includes expanding the original text by adding words/sentences. This type of editing usually is not time consuming and requires no extensive research on the topic. The name of the editor will be listed under the editors section of the edited article. In case no name is provided, IP address will be used as the name of editor.

- Major improvements involve the expansion of the original text. The edit is usually at least a paragraph in length to be considered in this category. This type of editing usually requires some research on the topic including citations of the references used. The name of the editor in this type of editing will be listed as one of the authors of the article. The new article, under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.5 License used on this website, is a derived work of the original article and previous authors of the original article is mentioned along with the new author.

Note: This type of contribution requires the edits to be reviewed by either the original author of the article or an administrator before making the changes in the science.dirbix database.

Create New Articles

Creating a new article will require at least a decent amount of text to give the reader a main idea of the topic. The creation of a new article also requires citations used in the article.
