Wiki Project Guidelines

I. Length

There is no word limit. Your Wiki Paper should be between 2,000 and 5,000 words in length (exclusive of references, maps, photographs, links to other open source content).

II. Purpose

Demonstrate (a) your ability to extract and summarize relevant information and (b) your capacity to rationalize and present logical arguments for further evolution or progress on some aspect of your case study.

III. Content

Content: each Wiki page should contain the following elements:

  • III.1 A Title – include the name of the community/communities and the country.
  • III.2 Summary in one paragraph
  • III.3 Text of paper
  • III.4 References cited
  • III.5 Notes (if any)
  • III.6 Figures, Maps and Tables (if any).

IV. Text of Paper

Headers for main sections will be provided on your Wiki page. You can add new sections.

  • IV.1 Description of the community forestry case study – Where located; history; national or regional context (if appropriate)
  • IV.2 Tenure arrangements. Describe the nature of the tenure: freehold or forest management agreement/arrangements, duration, etc.
  • IV.3 Administrative arrangements. Describe the management authority and the reporting system.
  • IV.4 Social actors (stakeholders, user groups) who are affected stakeholders, their main relevant objectives, and their relative power
  • IV.5 Social actors (stakeholders, user groups) who are interested stakeholders, outside the community, their main relevant objectives, and their relative power
  • IV.6 A discussion of the aims and intentions of the community forestry project and your assessment of relative successes or failures. You should also include a discussion of critical issues or conflicts in this community and how they are being managed
  • IV.7 Your assessment of the relative power of each group of social actors, and how that power is being used
  • IV.8 Your recommendations about this community forestry project

Note: Italic text if you are unable to find any information on one or more of these categories in your literature search, then say so. You can then write about this gap in section IV.8

V. References

  • V.1 Please provide a full reference for every work cited anywhere in the paper in the ‘References Cited’ section at the end of the Wiki page.
  • V.2 Provide a citation for every sentence, statement, thought, or bit of data not your own, giving the author, year, AND page.

If you would like add a name for who or what project created the resource, add that info after the names parameters. If left blank, it will default to Course:FRST270. If you would like your resource to be reused, add a yes to the share parameter. This will add a Creative Commons license to the resource.
