Wikimedia Research/Office hours
Wikimedia Research Office Hours are personal consultation hours with individual team members from the Research team. They are open to anyone interested and are meant to address questions regarding proposed or in-progress research work, information on how to access datasets or run an analysis, receive updates on ongoing work by the Wikimedia Research team, learn more about programming and initiatives led by the Wikimedia Research team, explore collaborations, and more.
We recommend using office hours as the “first stop” when attempting to launch a research project for which you would like to seek our team’s input or to communicate with our team in a high bandwidth synchronous way.

|I am accountable for the Wikimedia Foundation's research direction and the way we do research at WMF. I am happy to talk with you about topics related to that. I also act as a catch-all for all other Wikimedia research related topics of your interest.
Office Hours Notes edit
In order to keep track of the various discussions conducted during office hours, we have started an Etherpad that will allow team members and attendees to take notes of their discussions. This is meant to serve as a valuable resource for anyone seeking information on topics and questions addressed by the research team.

Past events edit
Between January 2020 and July 2022, we organized almost 30 public office hours where multiple people could join the call at once. We have changed the format of the office hours to one-on-one since. However, if you want to learn more about topics covered in those early days of our office hours, you can do so at https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Research-Analytics-Office-hours .
