Unused parameters may be omitted. This template automatically adds articles to Category:WikiProject Women scientists articles.

Optional parameters

  • class – valid values are: fa, a, ga, b, c, start, stub, fl, list, category, disambig, draft, file, portal, project, template, na (case-insensitive). See the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Marie Curie, use |listas=Curie, Marie so that the talk page will show up in the C's and not the M's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • needs-photo – set |needs-photo=yes to request that an image(s) be included in the article to improve its quality.
  • small – this parameter is no longer supported and can safely be removed from the template.
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.


  • The parameters |infobox-requested=, |infobox-needed= and |infobox= are recognised as aliases for |needs-infobox=. If more than one is present, the order of precedence, from highest to lowest, is: |needs-infobox=|infobox-requested=|infobox-needed=|infobox= . Parameters with lower precedence are ignored.
  • The parameters |needs-image=, |image-needed= and |photo-needed= are recognised as aliases for |needs-photo=. If more than one is present, the order of precedence, from highest to lowest, is: |needs-photo=|needs-image=|image-needed=|photo-needed= . Parameters with lower precedence are ignored.
