Bringing Estonian Science to Wikipedia is a project for creating in Estonian Wikipedia biographical articles about most of Estonian scientists.

Though in several other countries it is not unusual to have the content of lexicons donated to Wikipedia, in the end of 2012 we had our first donation in Estonia: by our agreement with the Estonian Association for History and Philosophy of Science, we transfer and meld the contents of four-volume "Biographical Lexicon of Estonian Science" into Wikipedia. This includes about 8000 articles, 6000 of which would be new.

To mechanize this work, Eero Ränik built a bot. We have added the material from the 3th volume into Estonian Wikipedia, we're working on the 4th volume and preparing volumes 1 & 2.
