Welcome to the Community Hub!

This page is intended to provide a known place for the community to provide important information and navigation links to the material it builds. Please note that this page and namespace will likely remain sparse and unfinished until the site builds momentum and active users.

Domains[edit]

We suggest that the community organize itself here according to the different domains of research summaries possible. They are:

  • Anthropology and Linguistics
  • Arts and Literature
  • Biology
  • Business and Economics
  • Chemistry (Including Biochemistry)
  • Computer and Systems Science
  • Earth and Environmental Sciences
  • Education
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Health and Medicine
  • History and Archaeology
  • Mathematics and Formal Logic
  • Parapsychology and Paranormal
  • Philosophy
  • Physics and Space Sciences
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Religion
  • Sociology
  • Other Professional (Law, Architecture, Etc.)

Namespace Notes[edit]

Feel free to use this namespace to support the goals of Brevy as you see fit. Be creative, but please try and keep the material here organized and resist large endeavors that might detract from the original intent of Brevy.

To create a page in this namespace, type Community:YourPageName into the search bar and then follow the red link to create that page. Please note that, unlike summary articles, this namespace has no guided interface for page creation. Because of this, you will likely want to be more familiar with wiki syntax before editing and may want to see Introduction to Wiki Concepts for a brief guide.

Suggested Community Links[edit]

It may be particularly useful for the community at large to agree on certain "best practices" for use in summary articles. Brevy encourages the community to tailor these to the specific domains but suggests that whatever pages are created still be linked here in the meantime.

General Tips[edit]

Tips and links to pages providing general suggestions for summary editing/creation may be placed here.

Subdomains[edit]

It may sometimes be difficult to decide which subdomain a summary should be given. For example, a Physics work may reasonably be listed as either "Cosmology" or "Cosmogony." Tips and links to pages for resolving such concerns may be placed here.

Tags[edit]

In order for searches on Brevy to be effective, tags must be used in a way that similar articles will share similar tags. Without the input from the community, this will grow difficult as more and more summaries are added. As such, Brevy suggests that tips and links to pages describing the level of detail and how to find common tags are posted here.

Other Material[edit]

We suggest adding other important community material here as it arises.
