An investigation of the relationship between the amount of extra-textual data and the quality of Wikipedia articles is a 2013 conference paper written in English by Himoro M.Y., Hanada R., Cristo M., Pimentel M.D.G.C. and published in WebMedia 2013 - Proceedings of the 19th Brazilian Symposium on Multimedia and the Web.

[edit] Abstract

Wikipedia, a web-based collaboratively maintained free encyclopedia, is emerging as one of the most important websites on the internet. However, its openness raises many concerns about the quality of the articles and how to assess it automatically. In the Portuguese-speaking Wikipedia, articles can be rated by bots and by the community. In this paper, we investigate the correlation between these ratings and the count of media items (namely images and sounds) through a series of experiments. Our results show that article ratings and the count of media items are correlated.
