A couple things to start[edit]

  1. Review articles are prefered
  2. If you take the PMID and add it under the "cite" link in the top of the edit window this will automatically fill in all the data. I think it works for ISBN aswell.

  1. Review articles are preferred to general-purpose books from respected authors and publishers, or are you just saying that since a lot of preliminary research does not pan out, it is preferable to wait until there is some agreement among the experts that an effect is real before recording it here? One of these would be pretty irresponsible, but I am not sure on the wherefores of the other.
  2. Sweet, thanks. Inconsistent citation style makes me twitch. Rot42 (talk) 09:11, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
