Taxon lists[edit]

  • The lists of taxa appear to contradict certain policies.
    1. First, notadirectory has already been mentioned above - specifically - See no.7 Wikipedia is not a complete exposition of all possible details. Rather, an article is a summary of accepted knowledge regarding its subject.
    2. Second, academic language should be eschewed. See: academic language # 7. Texts should be written for everyday readers, not for academics.
    3. Content Information cannot be included solely for being true or useful. Merely being true, or even verifiable, does not automatically make something suitable for inclusion in the encyclopedia. See WP:INDISCRIMINATE
    4. Wikipedia is not a mere collection of internal links. Something like this may be appropriate for a stand alone list article. See WP:NOTLINK.
    5. Wikipedia, or the article, is not a scientific journal, or academic journal and should not be treated like it is. See Wikipedia is not a scientific journal
    6. These are articles about the journals. A statement that the journal is the vehicle for new species descriptions, would be sufficient. ---- Steve Quinn (talk) 08:07, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
