Wikipedia links (en)

This network consists of the wikilinks of the Wikipedia in the English language (en). Nodes are Wikipedia articles, and directed edges are wikilinks, i.e., hyperlinks within one wiki. In the wiki source, these are indicated with [[double brackets]]. Only pages in the article namespace are included.
