Thank you. I also enjoyed this link: www.defeatdd.org/sites/default/files/nod...TH_6-20-16-Final.pdf
It presents the information in a very crystal clear and simplified manner. This constitute a fantastic resource, if someone wants to know the "basics" of EE.

Re: Improving Wikipedia article on "Environmental enteropathy"

Hi,

Clearly I got very enthusiastic about re-writing!!
I didn't track changes, I just merged what I would add into the existing article which I pasted into Word.
I can happily go back over and highlight changes I made or things I added, add comments on why etc.
Not proposing you use my entire article, as I said, happy for you to just take sections.

Sophie

Thanks FH Mugal, the Keusch paper is very good.

Re: Improving Wikipedia article on "Environmental enteropathy"

Dear Sophie,
Yes, please do that, that would be very useful. You could see how it was done here for the Wikipedia article on waste stabilisation ponds:
forum.susana.org/discussions-about-speci...-stabilization-ponds

Marcos basically told us which sentences and sections in the existing Wikipedia article needed changing and we (Diane and I) then made the changes. At the end, when he felt more confident, he did the last few edits himself directly in the Wikipedia article.

You might feel like putting in your changes directly into the Wikipedia article yourself? That would by great. If you do, make sure you don't do everything in one go but bit by bit, perhaps over the course of a week. This gives other people who are watching the Wikipedia article, like previous editors, a chance to react and to follow your progress, rather than be overwhelmed by a huge amount of changes in one go.
Tables are a little tricky to insert into the Wikipedia article; it can be done. Your table 1 would require references for each row or though, rather than just some references in the caption.

Is Figure 1 an open access figure? If not we cannot use it. Same applies to the image that you propose. Is it open access or is it your own? Both would work. If it's someone else's we would have to get permission that it's open access. Some additional images that are specific to EE would be useful, e.g. any microscopic ones? If you see any in open access articles, they could be used (= the beauty of open access publishing).

I am not sure what the underlining in your Word document means? Is that wiki links to other Wikipedia articles (that would be good)? Note that we do not keep linking each time a term appears but only at the beginning of the article, i.e. when it first appears.

Thanks for your help!

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. Mughal: just to clarify: this thread is not about writing a new stand alone document about EE. It is about improving the existing Wikipedia article on this topic. Wikipedia is one place where people go to look up information. Therefore, this exercise is about ensuring what they find in Wikipedia is good, accurate and easy to understand. There is already a Wikipedia article about EE so the idea is to improve it. And if there are good publications about EE, they should be cited in the appropriate places of the article. Let's see when we have incorporated Sophie's new text and new references whether any of those publications that you have listed are still missing and still need to be cited. Thanks.
