Final drafts for this course were due 28 November 2012. 83 students total. Please leave comments in a new section on the talk page.
As highlighted in the paragraph below, please "respect" secondary sources.[a] Don't cite interviews. They're not a published source that can be verified by others.[b]

Welcome. I'm "Biosthmors", and I'll be helping out your Introductory Neuroscience taught by Steve Potter. Another Wikipedian, "Disavian", a GT alumnus who has worked extensively on GT topics on Wikipedia, is also here to help. You can ask either of us questions either at Disavian's talk page or my talk page. In the following format:

#{{User|Your user name}} — Your name — {{la|Article title}}

please type your user name, name, and your existing or proposed article title[c] below. You can click edit down across from the "Names and article titles" section to selectively open it. Also, please copy and paste this template into the talk page of your article:

{{Educational assignment|year=2012|link=User:Biosthmors/Intro Neuro}} [d]

Here are some some tips and links. If you are starting a new article (indicated by a red link or a redirect), your topic should be notable (see the general notability guideline) and worthy of a separate page (see the reasons for merging). It's possible someone else wrote an article on the same subject so check for alternate titles (and one shouldn't capitalize the second or subsequent words in an article title, unless the title is a proper noun). As an example, here's an article I started from scratch. Another one I started (with an interesting title) is drunk walking. The highest-quality article I've written so far is deep vein thrombosis, which I rewrote. Because this is an encyclopedia, we are based off of secondary sources (as this and this explain for medicine and science). Review articles are the main secondary source for biomedical content. One doesn't have to use {{In use}} or {{Under construction}} on articles, though they might be useful. Again, let me or Disavian know if you have any questions. Why do I edit here? An example would be this collaboration to improve an article about a tremendously important global disease. Happy editing. =)

    1. Tagged in December 2012 as "needs attention from an expert on the subject. The specific problem is: general review". Article appears to try to teach the subject with unnecessary background information, instead of summarizing the subject. Shouldn't the article have been condensed and incorporated into gender originally?

WikiProject Templates[edit]


In addition to the classroom template, which should go below other templates, on the talk page of the article you are working on please make sure it is categorized into the appropriate WikiProjects, such as


for WikiProject Neuroscience, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Medicine, Anatomy, Psychology, Pharmacology, and Chemicals, if your subject clearly falls into the scope of that field. Please add Template:WikiProjectBannerShell if there are three or more projects of clear interest. As an example, using that template correctly can look like this:


See Talk:Paraphasia as an example. Long version to copy/paste then remove extraneous projects:



With the cite journal method...

If you have a PubMed ID (PMID) just paste it into this website (included among a the list of tools at Help:Citation tools) and you'll get a fully formatted {{cite journal}} template that you will place inside of the the reference tags, <ref></ref> (see the cheatsheet for an example). So pasting 22042752 of PMID 22042752 into the website yields

{{cite journal |author=Strijkers RH, Cate-Hoek AJ, Bukkems SF, Wittens CH |title=Management of deep vein thrombosis and prevention of post-thrombotic syndrome |journal=BMJ |volume=343 |issue= |pages=d5916 |year=2011 |pmid=22042752 |doi= |url=}}

So, into your article (directly behind the punctuation), place

<ref name="Strijkers">{{cite journal |author=Strijkers RH, Cate-Hoek AJ, Bukkems SF, Wittens CH |title=Management of deep vein thrombosis and prevention of post-thrombotic syndrome |journal=BMJ |volume=343 |issue= |pages=d5916 |year=2011 |pmid=22042752 |doi= |url=}}</ref>

That's it. Notice the reference name in case one wants to cite the article multiple times. To cite it a second, third, etc. time in the article (above or below the full length version) all one has to do is type is <ref name="Strijkers"/>. Notice the /. That is the important distinction from the beginning of the full-length version. (Now if you want to be fancy, you can find and add the doi and url to a free full text version, if they exist, which in this case only the doi exists. Adding the url or PMC is more helpful to readers, because it will activate the title to link to free full text version. The doi can be added by someone running a program later, I think.) So, if you place the doi into the cite journal template, and then place it into the article, as long as it has a reference section at the bottom per the cheatsheet, it will look like this and have a number automatically assigned to it in the reference section:

Strijkers RH, Cate-Hoek AJ, Bukkems SF, Wittens CH (2011). "Management of deep vein thrombosis and prevention of post-thrombotic syndrome". BMJ 343: d5916. doi:10.1136/bmj.d5916. PMID 22042752. 

Explanatory footnotes example[edit]

To add footnotes with {{efn}}, do this inside the article:

Something or another.{{efn|The note goes here and you can even add references inside here.}}

One can see examples of using this template at prothrombin G20210A and deep vein thrombosis.

  1. ^ While the hyperlink on " 'respect' secondary sources" goes to a medical article guideline, and your article may not fall under that scope, the text is still valuable. An encyclopedia is a tertiary source. In general, every new study (primary source) that relates to your topic shouldn't make your article need a revision. Facts written in an encyclopedia tend to be established enough to have some "sticking" power before they become outdated. Primary sources are not prohibited, but they should be cited with care and a respect for secondary literature. In lesser studied areas, citations to primary literature are likely desired. In extensively studied areas, a good article may not cite a single primary source.
  2. ^ Neither should one include information sourced only to an interview. Again, it's not verifiable to others in published sources, like peer-reviewed literature.
  3. ^ Please ensure that the text, capitalization, and punctuation of your article title on this page exactly matches the article you create or the link may not go to your article. Check back on this page because I may have edited your title so that it conforms to Wikipedia's guideline.
  4. ^ Please place this template at the top of the page, but below existing templates, if present.
