Your edits[edit]

Hello and welcome to Wikipedia. Thank you for your efforts in adding references to Wikipedia articles. Unfortunately I've had to revert your edits made so far, because in three out of four cases the pages you linked to were not reliable sources but mere mirrors of Wikipedia's own text, and as such unsuitable as independent confirmations of the claims in question. Please be careful with sites like "", discussion fora and other websites that frequently (more or less openly) quote or re-use Wikipedia texts. In a fourth case, it appeared to me that the source you cited didn't really contain support for the claim in question (i.e. that "materials science" has been established as a new major branch of the natural sciences on a par with the five traditional major branches such as physics, biology etc.)

Please don't let this discourage you from further contributing. You might want to check out our guideline at WP:Reliable sources about what to look for in adding good references, and don't hesitate to ask me or some other experienced user if questions arise. Fut.Perf. 19:41, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback. I'll be more cautious when citing Kurtbusch2 (talk) 22:48, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
