Information and resources for contributors

Powerbase is an encyclopaedia of spin, propaganda, think tanks, institutes and other organisations and individuals engaged in communicative activities.

Powerbase is a specialised database intended for examining connections between organisations. It can be used as an educational, campaigning, or knowledge transfer tool. The many links between Powerbase pages on related subjects mean that they are picked up and ranked high by Google. As a result, research conducted today can be on the web and easily available to thousands the next day. This makes it an ideal resource for investigative research as it blends research and publication seamlessly.

Powerbase is by its nature a collaborative project which welcomes new contributors. To become involved you must first register as a User. See How to Register as a User for more information and email melissa.jones AT Powerbase.info with your real name. Once you are approved you will be sent a User Name and password to enable you to log in and edit. This is a simple process. You will be able to contribute as much or as little as you want, whenever you want.

The site is based on a Wiki system, such as Wikipedia and Sourcewatch. These websites are open access Wikis, whereas Powerbase is a closed Wiki. This is to maintain some level of editorial control and to prevent acts of online vandalism: which is why it requires registration to contribute.

If you want more information on how Wikis work, go to the help page. The help & policy and guideline pages (click on the links below) also offers advice and assistance on how Powerbase works. A good place to start is with the contributing page.

If you have any queries please contact the Powerbase managing editor by emailing melissa.jones AT Powerbase.info
