Usage[edit]

This template is for linking to an article within a periodical, such as a newspaper or journal.

Parameters[edit]

Mandatory
  • article Article name, as it appears in the text. You must give either this parameter or "direct_link".
  • periodical Periodical name (eg "The New York Times")
Optional
  • year Year (four digits)
  • month Month (no leading zeros)
  • day Day (no leading zeros)
  • series Series number
  • volume Volume in which the article appears. If you use this parameter, the link will be formatted in a "Periodical/Volume XX" manner, rather than "Periodical/Date"
  • issue Issue in which the article appears. Volume must be given. If you use this parameter, the link will be formatted in a "Periodical/Volume XX/Issue XX" manner, rather than "Periodical/Date"
  • issue_rank Rank of the issue-level (e.g. "Issue", "Number" or "Part"). Defaults to "Issue" if not given. Enter the word "blank" to prevent any issue rank prefix, for example, for works with issues named by month.
  • You must give one of "year, month and day", "year and month", "year" or "volume". If you give a date and a volume, the volume will be used for the link, and the date will be presented after that, in brackets and unlinked.
  • link Article page name (if different to the article title). The "article" parameter will still appear as the link text.
  • direct_link Use this parameter if the article page is not in the periodical page hierarchy. This field is free-text, so you must add your own wikilinks, eg "[[Article title (NYT)]]". If you use this parameter, "link" and "article" are ignored. If you do not give "article", you must give this parameter.
  • author Author of the article. This is a free-text field: use [[Author:]] links. This allows multiple authors more easily. This will be preceded by "By".
  • coauthor Co-author of the author. This will be placed after the author, if given, and preceded by "with".
  • editor Editor. Placed after the author and co-author and preceded by "ed.".
  • p Page (or start page)
  • pp End page (only used if "p" given)
  • section Section of periodical in which the article is (e.g. "Home and Garden")
