What do Wikidata and Wikipedia have in common? An analysis of their use of external references
Wikidata is a community-driven knowledge graph, strongly linked to Wikipedia. However, the connection between the two projects has been sporadically explored. We investigated the relationship between the two projects in terms of the in- formation they contain by looking at their external references. Our findings show that while only a small number of sources is directly reused across Wikidata and Wikipedia, references of- ten point to the same domain. Furthermore, Wikidata appears to use less Anglo-American-centred sources. These results deserve further in-depth investigation.

Abstract

Wikidata is a community-driven knowledge graph, strongly linked to Wikipedia. However, the connection between the two projects has been sporadically explored. We investigated the relationship between the two projects in terms of the in- formation they contain by looking at their external references. Our findings show that while only a small number of sources is directly reused across Wikidata and Wikipedia, references of- ten point to the same domain. Furthermore, Wikidata appears to use less Anglo-American-centred sources. These results deserve further in-depth investigation.
