Markusson, Nils; et al. (2016): Contrasting medium and genre on Wikipedia to open up the dominating definition and classification of geoengineering

Markusson, Nils; Venturini, Tommaso; Laniado, David; Kaltenbrunner, Andreas (2016): Contrasting medium and genre on Wikipedia to open up the dominating definition and classification of geoengineering. In Big Data & Society 3 (2). DOI 10.1177/2053951716666102.

"We analyse the representation of geoengineering on Wikipedia as a way of opening up this dominating, if contested, model for further debate. We achieve this by contrasting the dominating model as presented in the encyclopaedic article texts with the patterns of hyper-link associations between the articles. Two datasets were created tracing the geoengineering construct on Wikipedia, shedding light on its boundary with its context, as well as on its internal structure. The analysis shows that the geoengineering category tends to be associated on Wikipedia primarily with atmospheric solar radiation management rather than land-based carbon dioxide removal type technologies."
