I just ran across a new-ish (Feb 17) resource for people interested in
running editathons for scientists, developed by the Simons Foundation. You
can read the blog post and download the guide in PDF form.
The guide provides a well-organized and comprehensive set of practical tips
for organizing, publicizing, and running editathons and is tuned to the
needs and interests of science SMEs.
Forwarding because I know there are many folks on this list who are
involved in this sort of work and/or could be.

For those of you who are not familiar with the Simons Foundation:
- they are one of the funders of the Wiki Education Foundation's Year of
Science , via their "Science Sandbox" program 
- they are also financially supporting the WikiCite event in Vienna in May
- they are among the organizations who formally endorsed the Initiative for
Open Citations we launched earlier this month
