Project assessment[edit]


The anatomical discipline (or field) of an article can also be set using the field parameter: {{WikiProject Anatomy|class=Start|importance=mid|field=x}}

  • This allows us to provide easy-to-access lists to contributors and professional and easily facilitate inter-project and intra-wiki collarboation.
  • The following values for 'field' are valid: animal, embryo, gross, meta, micro, NA, neuro, organs, systems
  • meta refers to subjects about the field of anatomy itself, including biographies, journal articles, organisations, definitions and articles relating to the history of anatomy.

Article assessment statistics[edit]

Goal 1: 20 GA-class articles

Goal 2: 150 B-class articles
