The material is already in digital format, but some budget can be used to turn into a standard format.

The LabiSAlp is a scientific center of research focused in the study of Alps. It is composed by a committee of researchers and teachers from different countries (Switzerland, Italy, France, etc.).

They have contacted Wikimedia CH in order to donate their scientific articles published in their review in different languages (German, French and Italian and some minors in Rumantsch).

The project is focused to:

  • Upload this content in Wikisource
  • Empower weak articles concerning Alps using this content
  • Organize a "peer review"

The budget (20.000 - 40.000 CHF) will cover these costs:

  • a person dedicated to the project in order to collaborate with the Laboratorio di Storia delle Alpi to help them to upload the content, to contact the authors and to review the text
  • organize local events to to give a plug to the project
