Rate Attribute Review Comment
1. Well written:
1a. the prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct. Have done a little copy-editing.
1b. it complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation. OK. The details of marriage and divorce are not ideally placed in "Early work" but it's not a major issue.

I've no idea what one is to do with line spacing when there are nuclide superscripts all over the place, guess it's untidy but unavoidable given the limitations of wikitext in browsers, unless one were to insist on writing them as "Helium-3" when in text, and putting the rest in images (or whatever) as equations. That would chime with rules about writing % as "percent", by the way.

2. Verifiable with no original research:
2a. it contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline. OK
2b. all in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines. Properly cited
2c. it contains no original research. OK
3. Broad in its coverage:
3a. it addresses the main aspects of the topic. Yes it does
3b. it stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style). OK
4. Neutral: it represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each. Have removed a few POV words.
5. Stable: it does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute. Not a problem.
6. Illustrated, if possible, by images:
6a. images are tagged with their copyright status, and valid fair use rationales are provided for non-free content. OK. Nobel image is tagged but lacks a description (not a showstopper)
6b. images are relevant to the topic, and have suitable captions. OK
7. Overall assessment. A readable, not over-technical summary of a great physicist. Nice work.

Orphaned references in Luis Walter Alvarez[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Luis Walter Alvarez's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "harv":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 21:13, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
