The IAIA Wiki is intended to be an "encyclopedia" of impact assessment topics and issues. Therefore, content should reflect a neutral point of view. Sometimes this will require offering multiple points of view, presenting each accurately, and not putting one view forward as "the truth" or "the best." Content should also be verifiable, with citations to reliable resources. The IAIA Wiki is not the appropriate place for opinions, personal experiences, or original research.

Editing a Page

You can edit an entire page or part of a page's content by clicking the "Edit" link. If you would like to edit a single part of a page, click the "Edit" near the title of the content piece. If you would like to add a heading and content, click the "Edit This Page" link at the top of the page.

For help on formatting syntax, see WikiHelp or WikiMarkup.

Internal Consistency

An overriding principle is that style and formatting should be consistent within an IAIA Wiki article, though not necessarily throughout the IAIA Wiki as a whole. Being consistent within an article promotes clarity and cohesion.

Page Discussions

Click the "Discuss" link near the top of the page to post a message or start a discussion regarding a page or its contents.

Page History

Each edit to a page is archived and viewable by clicking the "History" link toward the top of the page. You are able to view who made changes, what changes were made and when the change was made.

File Upload

There are two ways to upload files to the wiki.
  1. While editing a page or page content, you can scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find a file upload form. Clicking on the browse button will open a file explorer window listing files on your computer. Selecting a file and clicking upload will upload the file to the wiki's file system.
  2. After successfully logging in, you'll see a 'File Management' link on the left side of the page. Click the link and you will see the file management page. Near the top you'll see a list of files and folders that exist for the wiki. Click a folder name to view its content.
