About This Wiki

My name is Ian Barbour and I am a researcher and student at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. I use this wiki to capture my notes on journal articles, conference proceedings and other interesting articles that come my way, but mainly as part of my workflow for my PhD studies.

Technical Setup

This is a DokuWiki installed on a hosted server. DokuWiki is a simple to use and highly versatile open source wiki software that doesn't require a database. The wiki has built in access controls and authentication connectors and there are a large number of templates and plugins that allow for a broad range of use cases beyond a traditional wiki.


I'm currently using the Vector template in order to mimic the look and feel of MediaWiki.


Proceed With Caution

All these pages are a work in progress and although this wiki is for my personal use you are free to read what I write.


Thanks to Stian Håklev for making his researchr wiki setup available for others to use and adapt
