Fields

Wikilinks

Most fields can be wikilinked (i.e. title = [[book article|book title]]), but should generally only be linked to an existing Wikipedia article. Any wikilinked field must not contain any brackets apart from normal round brackets () — don't use <>[]{}.

Description of fields

Syntax (for the technical-minded)

Nested fields either rely on their parent fields, or replace them:

  • parent
    • child — may be used with parent (and is ignored if parent is not used)
    • OR: child2 — may be used instead of parent (and is ignored if parent is used)

Description

  • last: Surname of author. Don't wikilink (use authorlink instead).
    • first: First name(s) of author, including title(s) (e.g. Firstname Middlename or Firstname M. or Dr. Firstname M., Snr.). Don't wikilink (use authorlink instead).
    • authorlink: Title of Wikipedia article about author. Article should already exist. Must not be wikilinked itself. Do not use this on its own, but along with "author" or "first" and "last".
    • coauthors: Full name of additional author or authors, separated by ", " (e.g. Joe Bloggs, John F. Kennedy, H. R. Dent).
    • OR: author: Full name of author, preferably surname first.
  • title: Title of paper. This is the only required parameter. Can be wikilinked only to an existing Wikipedia article. Do not use italics.
  • version: Version of paper, if available.
  • pages: First page and optional last page. This is for listing the pages relevant to the citation, not the total number of pages in the book, e.g. pp. 5–7.
  • publisher: Publisher should not include corporate designation such as "Ltd" or "Inc".
  • date: Full date of publication edition being referenced, in ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format, e.g. 2006-02-17. Must not be wikilinked.
    • format: Format, e.g. PDF. HTML implied if not specified.
  • doi: A digital object identifier for the document, such as 10.1130/0091-7613(1990)018<1153:TAFSIA>2.3.CO;2.
  • doi_brokendate: Sometimes the doi target link might not function (e.g. the journal is transferred to a new publisher which does not provide doi access). A blanked out doi parameter could lead to a later editor or bot re-adding the doi. Instead, use this parameter which, like accessdate, takes ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format, for example "doi_brokendate= 2018-06-25". Must not be wikilinked.
    The doi value is still shown, but without a link, and the mainspace article is added to "Category:Pages with DOIs broken since YYYY".
  • id: A unique identifier other than doi. You need to specify the kind of identifier you are using, preferably with a template like {{ISSN}}.
  • url: URL of an online location where the book can be found. Cannot be used if you wikilinked title.
    • If a DOI or PMID is available, the URL should only be specified if it would point to a different page to that which a DOI or PMID would redirect to.
    • accessdate: Full date when url was accessed, in ISO 8601 YYYY-MM-DD format, e.g. 2006-02-17. Required when url field is used. Must not be wikilinked.
