Circadian patterns of Wikipedia editorial activity: a demographic analysis reports a study on the temporal characteristics of contributor activity on Wikipedia.
The paper was summarized in Wikimedia Research Newletter September 2011:
- 'Another paper, titled "Circadian patterns of Wikipedia editorial activity: A demographic analysis", similarly analyzed "34 Wikipedias in different languages [trying] to characterize and find the universalities and differences in temporal activity patterns of editors", with the underlying data provided by the German Wikimedia chapter from the toolserver. They found that "in contrast to diurnal [daily] pattern, which is universal to a great extent, weekly activity patterns of WPs show remarkable differences. We could, however, identify two main categories, namely 'weekends' and 'working days' active WPs."'
