    The general outline and collection has been started, but if you would like to expand and organize your country/region, here's what you do. Right below the page heading for your country/region insert this: {{subst:Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Work groups/Division banner}} and save. This will put a rough outline together for you and then you can edit it to conform to your area. If your project grows large enough where it's taking up a good portion of this page, you should probably move it to a subpage of this page. You might also want to make a Members section for people to join your specific area!

    Any article related to this work group should be marked by adding |s&a-work-group=yes to the {{WPBiography}} project banner at the top of its talk page. This will automatically place it into Category:Science and academia work group articles. Articles can be assessed for priority within this work group by using the |s&a-priority= parameter. See Template:WikiProject Biography/docfor detailed instructions on how to use the banner.
