Template:WikiProject Academic Journals/doc


Note: the shorter templates, {{WPJournals}} or {{WikiProject Journals}}, may be used in place of {{WikiProject Academic Journals}}

Article space

Basic syntax:

{{WikiProject Academic Journals|class= <!--Stub Start C B GA A FA List FL Redirect Disambig-->}}

Full syntax:

{{WikiProject Academic Journals
 |class         = <!-- Stub Start C B GA A FA / List FL / Redirect Disambig -->
 |needs-infobox = <!-- Set to "yes" when no infobox, else delete -->
 |listas        = <!-- Set to "Title, The" when [[The Title]], else delete -->
Non-article (NA) space

You can usually just drop the empty template on the talk page of files, templates, categories, or project (Wikipedia: prefix) pages:

{{WikiProject Academic Journals}}

The template will auto-detect the space (based on the prefix in the page name). If you want to manually specify the class, the additional non-mainspace classes are:

{{WikiProject Academic Journals|class= <!--(File Template Category Project) NA-->}}

One example of overriding the auto-detection: Category:Bimonthly journals is a category soft redirect to the actual Category:Bi-monthly journals. The later can be tagged with the parameter-less banner, but the former is technically a "class=Redirect" (rather than the automatic Category-Class).

The "NA" is optionally for Non-Article pages that would need to be manually grouped outside of the File/Template/Category/Project classes (such as a documentation page located in Template space).

Optional parametersEdit

  • class – valid values are listed in the custom class mask. See the project's quality scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Norman Lockyer, use |listas=Lockyer, Norman so that the talk page will show up in the L's and not the N's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.
