Some Wikipedians have formed a WikiProject to better organize the completion of articles found in other encyclopedias but missing from the English Wikipedia. This is important because to be the most comprehensive encyclopedia on the planet, Wikipedia ought to contain articles on topics that other encyclopedias contain! This is also a good way to counter systemic bias in coverage. See also Wikipedia:Requested articles and WikiProject Intertranswiki, a project which very much overlaps with this one.

Project goals

Although the English Wikipedia is the largest encyclopedia in existence, this does not mean it covers every topic covered by other encyclopedias. The main goal of this project is to ensure that Wikipedia has a corresponding article for every article in every other general purpose encyclopedia available, including alternative language Wikipedias! Since the main goals are very close to completion, secondary lists from outside sources have been added to the project as secondary goals. The main goals of the project should still remain the main focus.
