Template:Publication to wiki notice

AntWiki: The Ants --- Online
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template is recommended to add at the top of taxon pages which are derived from an original article. It links to the publication and informs that much, but no necessarily all content is derived from that publication and needs to be attributed to these authors.

A major reason to include this notice is to address two concerns of the original authors:

  1. that they are not sufficiently attributed for the information, although they have supplied perhaps 99%
  2. that they are held responsible for later changes, which introduce an error.

Parameters:

  • Formatted page title,
  • Formatted page subtitle (together the two must be after stripping formatting, identical with the actual page title)
  • Original publication page (a wiki page; alternative to Original publication URL)
  • Original publication URL (a web page starting with "http"; alternative to Original publication page))
  • Original publication citation (a formatted text)

Example (with dummy links):

{{Publication to wiki notice
| Original publication page = Main Page
| Original publication citation = Author1, A. & Author2, B. 2011. 
''Homo sapiens'': An example with a species name. Journal '''45:''' 234.
}}

and

{{Publication to wiki notice
| Original publication URL = http://www.species-id.net
| Original publication citation = Author1, A. & Author2, B. 2011. 
''Homo sapiens'': An example with a species name. Journal '''45:''' 234.
}}

Notice:

The first version of this taxon page is derived from the original publication: Author1, A. & Author2, B. 2011. Homo sapiens: An example with a species name. Journal 45: 234. and was created by the author(s) and the publisher. While the original author(s) should always be credited, further contributors may edit and improve the content of this taxon page and need to be credited consequently as well (see page history). Any assessment of factual correctness requires a careful review of the original article as well as of consequent contributions. We recommend to always cite the original publication, either alone or in addition to the present taxon page.

If you are uncertain whether your contribution is correct or not, we suggest you use the associated discussion page instead of editing the taxon page directly.
