Welcome, but be careful[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Here are suggested readings: WP:SECONDARY and WP:COI. The gist of these guidelines are:

  • Wikipedia prefers citations reviews and books, not primary journal references (tens of thousands appear annually). Citing secondary sources is the encyclopedic style.
  • Do not cite yourself or your colleagues. It's called conflict of interest. Many new editors cite themselves mainly. That behavior is considered inappropriate, and totally uncool.

If you have questions, many editors will offer advice. Happy editing. --Smokefoot (talk) 19:31, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

You may also want to take a look at WP:REFSPAM. Cheers a13ean (talk) 02:24, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
