ISMET Wikipedia content editors


Are you a PhD student or Postdoctoral Fellow and are you a keen Wikipedia contributor or aspire to become one?
We are seeking at improving current Wikipedia entries and generate new content in the field of Microbial Electrochemistry and Technologies.

If you wish to contribute, ISMET will award outstanding contributions with one-year memberships, provided that submissions meet the following conditions:

  1. the contribution is aligned with the general structure outlined in the guidelines (see below);
  2. the contribution is of at least 1,000 words in total;
  3. the contribution is of excellent scientific quality;
  4. the contribution follows the Wikipedia editorial principles

Entries will be assessed on a competitive basis and selected based on their quality by a committee of experts.

To submit your contribution, please include the following documentation in an email to

  • Your full contact details, including an email address and affiliation (if applicable);
  • A word document including the title(s) and body of your entry(ies) with the total word count;
  • Your Wikipedia username. All enquires can be sent to

General guidelines for Wikipedia entries

The main page titled “Microbial Electrochemical Technologies” provides the platform containing all sections covering the various aspects of the technology. This structure is meant to provide general guidelines for contributions. Titles indicated in bold may link to independent Wikipedia entries (pages). In this case, a brief summary and a link to the relevant page(s) should be included in the main page.
Please note that contributions are not restricted to individual sections as per the general structure outlined below, but could be split into multiple contributions. Submissions that directly contribute to the development of the main page are also encouraged.

Microbial Electrochemical Technologies

  • Introduction (this section should provide general information on the technology)
  • History (this section should provide a brief outline on the development of the field of Microbial electrochemistry)
  • Principles
    • Microbial extracellular electron transfer (mechanisms, microorganisms, etc.)
    • Bioelectrochemical systems (principles, components, configurations)
  • Applications
    • Energy recovery and generation
      • Wastewater treatment with MFC
      • Benthic MFC
    • Nutrients recovery
    • Microbial Electrochemical Remediation (this section should cover groundwater, soil, and sediment remediation)
    • Microbial electrochemical production of chemicals
      • Microbial electrolysis for production of H2
