What is JCW?[edit]

  • A searchable compilation of all |journal= parameters from {{cite xxx}} templates on en-wiki
    • Based on citations like <ref name=Bloom1969>{{cite journal |last1=Bloom |first1=E. D. |display-authors=etal |year=1969 |title=High-Energy Inelastic ep Scattering at 6° and 10° |journal=Physical Review Letters |volume=23 |issue=16 |pages=930–934 |doi=10.1103/PhysRevLett.23.930}}</ref>
    • Ignores named reference repeats like <ref name=Bloom1969/>
    • Ignores "manual" citations like <ref>Bloom, E. D. et al. "High-Energy Inelastic ep Scattering at 6° and 10°". Physical Review Letters, 23 (16): 930–934. doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.23.930</ref>
  • Available at WP:JCW (with disclaimers / caveats)
  • Designed to identify high-interest areas lacking coverage, and high-interest problem areas
  • Framework gives several side benefits, or puts them within easy reach
    • Creation and identification of redirects
      • Abbreviations J. Phys.Journal of Physics
      • Former names Annales de PhysiqueEuropean Physical Journal H
      • Common typos/spelling variants Annual Reviews of ...Annual Review of ...
    • Categorization of redirects and corresponding targets (more on this later)

Identification/Categorization[edit]

Basic status
  • Blue = Exist
  • Red = Does not exist
  • Bold = Article
  • Italics = Redirect
  • Underline = Disambiguation
Categorization (see exact rules)
  • Hierarchical keyword-based approach
    • ISO 4 > Journals > Magazines > Newspapers > Websites > Books > Databases > Publishers
  • Looks for {{R from ISO 4}} first (extremely reliable)
  • Looks for (foobar) disambiguator in title (very reliable)
  • Looks in foobar in categories (reliable)
    • Category keywords are a bit different (plurals/less variations)
  • Looks for foobar in titles (not very reliable)

Filtering[edit]

  • |journal=[[Foo|Bar]] is treated as |journal=Bar
  • markup and whitespace is stripped and normalized
  • |journal= is often misused for books, magazines, websites, or contains wrong/extraneous data like authors/publisher/volume/page
  • |journal= also has many abbreviated variants (standard and non-standard), spelling variants, punctuation variants, typos
    • Redirect creation, cleanup efforts, etc.
