Template:Cite MAG/doc

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This convenience template is used to cite the bibliographies of Michael Gerzon in Wikipedia. It is specifically for citing the books as references in the article Michael Gerzon. The template simply passes fields onto the template {{cite book}}.

Usage[edit]

Only the field |year= is required. All field names must be in lowercase. Copy one of the blank versions to use. Remember to use the "|" (pipe) character between each field.

{{Cite MAG | year = 2008 | page = | pages = | chapter = | quote = }}
{{Cite MAG | year = 2010 | page = | pages = | chapter = | quote = }}

If there are no specific pages or chapter to cite then copy:

{{Cite MAG | year = 2008}}
{{Cite MAG | year = 2010}}

Fields[edit]

The fields are a small subset of those used in the template {{cite book}}. Use at most only one of the fields |page=, |pages= or |chapter=.

  • year: Either 2008 or 2010 (required).
  • page: For citing a single page.
  • pages: For citing multiple pages using, for example, either of the forms "25–27" or "25, 27", as appropriate.
  • chapter: For citing an entire chapter of the book, for example, "Chapter 6: Tetrahedral Recording".
  • quote: For including a short quotation from the book. Do not include quotation marks as these will be added.
