A WikiProject is a group of editors that want to work together as a team to improve Physicswiki. These groups often focus on a specific topic area (for example, Applied physics) or a specific kind of task (for example, checking newly created pages).

A WikiProject's pages is not a place to write reference material articles directly, but a resource to help coordinate and organize the writing and editing of those articles. WikiProjects often write advice for editors, use bots to track what is happening at articles of interest to the group, and create handy lists of tools and templates their members commonly use. The discussion pages attached to a WikiProject page are a convenient forum for those involved in that WikiProject to talk about what they are doing, to ask questions, and to receive advice from other people interested in the group's work.

Physicswiki currently has about 100 WikiProjects.

Creating and maintaining a WikiProject

Creating a WikiProject is the process of creating a group of people who want to work together.

Before starting, read the guide to WikiProject organization, and peruse some existing WikiProjects to understand how they operate in practice. If you're not sure about creating a new WikiProject, or aren't certain if anyone else is interested, you can make a WikiProject proposal. Groups of like-minded editors may start new WikiProjects at any time and are encouraged, but not obligated, to propose them before doing so. Formal proposals have many advantages, including receiving valuable input, and saving a lot of work, and recruiting potential members.
