This template is the project banner for WikiProject History of Science.

The template is to be placed on talk pages (only) of the articles identified as being within the Project's scope (basically anything to do with the histories of science, technology, and medicine, as well as science studies, STS, etc.).

This template automatically assigns the category Category:WikiProject History of Science articles to the articles' talk pages. This category and other associated WikiProject categories are used in various ways by the Project in the overall management of the Project's workload.

This template contains optional parameters, details of usage are given below.

Usage instructions

General syntax options for this template are as follows:

{{WikiProject History of Science
  |class=
  |importance=
}}

The parameters are named, and (if used) must be entered exactly as-is (note, all are lowercase).

The class and importance parameters are associated with the Project's article assessment and rating scheme. These parameters add a category to the talkpage, which category depends on the values chosen.

Class

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject History of Science}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject History of Science|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class history of science articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class history of science articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class history of science articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class history of science articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class history of science articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class history of science articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class history of science articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class history of science articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class history of science articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class history of science articles) Category page Category 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class history of science articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class history of science articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class history of science articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class history of science articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed history of science articles)  ??? 

Importance

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject History of Science}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject History of Science|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project:

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance history of science articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance history of science articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance history of science articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance history of science articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance history of science articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance history of science articles  ??? 

The importance parameter should be assigned according to the importance scale below.
