ShExStatements: Simplifying Shape Expressions for Wikidata

John Samuel Samuel


Wikidata recently supported entity schemas based on shape expressions (ShEx). They play an important role in the validation of items belonging to a multitude of domains on Wikidata. However, the number of entity schemas created by the contributors is relatively low compared to the number of WikiProjects. The past couple of years have seen attempts at simplifying the shape expressions and building tools for creating them. In this article, ShExStatements is presented with the goal of simplifying writing the shape expressions for Wikidata.
