A new book dedicated to helping beginners create their own Wikipedia articles was presented at the 2020 Vsenauka Forum in Moscow. The book was written by Wikimedia RU as part of the implementation of the “Graduates and Mentors of Russian Universities” grant project.

Small in volume (56 pages), the book in fact is a guide that gives a general idea of the Wikimedia movement. The book tells about the basic rules that must be considered before creating an article, as well as practical examples, showing all stages of articles’ creating. And also this is the book with pictures!
