|author= |first= |last= |page= |pages= |url= |volume=

See the documentation of {{cite encyclopedia}} for more details about these parameters.

There are three other parameters which can be used in this template that affect it and are not passed on as parameters into {{cite encyclopedia}} these are:

|noicon=x |vb=x |display=display name

Details of theses parameters can be found lower down this page.

Examples[edit]

Display using wstitle (Wikisource link)[edit]

{{Cite EB1922|wstitle=Fischer, Theobald}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg Chisholm, Hugh, ed. (1922). "Fischer, Theobald". Encyclopædia Britannica (12th ed.). London & New York. 

Display using title (no Wikisource link)[edit]

{{Cite EB1922|title=Fischer, Theobald}}

displays as:

PD-icon.svg Chisholm, Hugh, ed. (1922). "Fischer, Theobald". Encyclopædia Britannica (12th ed.). London & New York. 

When title is being used, url can be used to specify an external link.

With comment[edit]

{{Cite EB1922|wstitle=Fischer, Theobald}} A German-born geographer who developed the Mediterranean region concept.

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg Chisholm, Hugh, ed. (1922). "Fischer, Theobald". Encyclopædia Britannica (12th ed.). London & New York.  A German-born geographer who developed the Mediterranean region concept.

Using noicon[edit]

{{Cite EB1922|wstitle=Fischer, Theobald|noicon=x}}

displays as:

Chisholm, Hugh, ed. (1922). "Fischer, Theobald". Encyclopædia Britannica (12th ed.). London & New York. 

Using vb[edit]

If text is incorporated verbatim into an article, the vb parameter can be used to tack on a notice appropriate to the policy in Wikipedia:Plagiarism.

{{Cite EB1922|wstitle=Lowell, Abbott Lawrence|vb=x}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domainChisholm, Hugh, ed. (1922). "Lowell, Abbott Lawrence". Encyclopædia Britannica (12th ed.). London & New York. 

Using display[edit]

The mechanics of Wikisource will sometimes require that a link have disambiguation information which is not part of the original title. The display parameter allows this information to be hidden for the purpose of the citation. For example:

{{Cite EB1922|wstitle=Nicholas (Russian Grand Duke)|display=Nicholas (Nikolai Nikolayevich), Russian Grand Duke}}

displays as:

Wikisource-logo.svg Chisholm, Hugh, ed. (1922). "Nicholas (Nikolai Nikolayevich), Russian Grand Duke". Encyclopædia Britannica (12th ed.). London & New York.
