Wikiomics:Meta:Citing This Wiki

From OpenWetWare

The guidelines for citing some material from the wiki are now slightly different from Wikipedia's policy. Here is what you want to cite, in order to guarantee a fair attribution of the works and guarantee the contents of what you are referring to:

  • Authors:
    • the name of the major contributors, if listed explicitely in the article, are given first; they should generally be followed by "Wikiomics authors" to account for anonymous or smaller contributions, e.g. AuthorX, AuthorY, AuthorZ and Wikiomics authors,
    • or just Wikiomics authors if there is no dedicated Credits section at the bottom of the article
  • Title: the title of the article
  • Date: the date of the revision that you are citing
  • Publisher: Wikiomics
  • Reference: the URL of the article, preferrably a frozen version taken from the history of the article since you don't want to cite an ever changing document: click on the "history" tab, then click on the date of the latest version and copy its URL. For example, the first revision of the present page is here
