The @Wikipedia page of Dr Clarice Phelps (…), researcher @ORNL, has been nominated for deletion because the references fail to establish notability. 🙏🏽 Please vote… and help improve the biography. #BHM #womeninSTEM
The problem is not that she’s not notable, or that @Wikipedia editors are a bunch of sexist trolls waiting to jump on the bio of an impressive scientist, but because despite her success there are very few reliable references I could use. She may have discovered an element, ..
but there’s relatively little written about her from reliable sources. Idea: universities, learned societies, news websites, start profiling these innovative and inspiring underrepresented minority scientists. It would help the @WikiWomenInRed squad a lot!
If she’d won a big award from @AmerChemSociety or @IUPAC the citation alone would have been a great ref. But it turns out awards and fellowship nominations are pretty biased, and at risk of being old white men celebrating old white men. 😫
LOL now I’m in trouble for ‘canvassing’ support to improve a @Wikipedia page. 😫
