There are a number of tools to ease editing Wikidata,
e.g. the Author Disambiguator
(by Arthur Smith, based on an initial version by Magnus Manske)
that can help identify specific authors based on author name strings.
Why is Scholia so biased and incomplete?
Scholia's data comes mostly from Wikidata, and that data is not
complete with respect to scientific articles, their authors, their
citations or their annotations.
Any scientometrics interpretation needs to keep in mind that the
statistics might be severely biased.
The data entered in Wikidata are mostly incorporated from other
databases, such as Pubmed Central and CrossRef. Works without
DOI are less likely to be added to Wikidata because it is more
difficult to automate the data entry. Most citations are also incorporated from other
databases. Articles from publishers that do not release their
citations (which can be avoided by participating in the initiative
I4OC) are less likely to have
their citations entered in Wikidata. Researchers without an ORCID
and their works are not publicly available with DOI on the ORCID website are
probably also less likely to be linked with their works on
There are quite likely other serious biases in Wikidata.
Scholia can help highlight some of the biases and facilitate user actions to help address them.
