How to request an article

First, check that the article you're looking for doesn't already exist:

  • Search Wikipedia or Google for existing articles. If an article exists, but not at the title you expected, you can create a redirect.
  • Check your spelling.
  • Articles generally use the most common name for the subject. This may not be the official name, scientific name, or another name you have in mind.

Next, be sure the article is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia. Articles should be about topics that have received significant coverage in independent, reliable sources. We have a fairly precise definition of what is considered a "reliable source", as well as detailed inclusion guidelines.

If that seems OK, find the appropriate general topic area below, choose the best sub-topic that fits your subject, and use that link to go to its page. Add your request there by clicking "edit" at the appropriate heading. Give a brief description, with links if possible, for the proposed topic, to aid others in understanding your request.

I want to write an article myself

If you have written an article, you can submit it for creation. Be aware that there are guidelines about what is an acceptable subject for an article, as mentioned above.
