as mentioned on the article talk page[edit]

speedy is only appropriate for articles out subject with no claim to notability whatsoever, and so was totally inappropriate. However, the article can nonetheless be proposed for deletion, and to avoid this :

  • say in the first sentence something to dramatically demonstrate notability, like "A.b. is an internationally-known professor of X at, winner of the XYZ prize and 10 honorary doctorates" , or A.B. is a notable authority on Whatever. She is ... (etc) (whatever applies best). Use the exact wording I recommend, including either the word "notable" or "internationally-known" or "nationally-known"; do not use "famous" -- May sound silly, but that is what many people look for here.
  • listing all college degrees and positions, with university and year -- and putting the university names in double brackets -- it makes a difference justy what position she has at her present university. dont rely on the CV link. summarize here, but do not copy the wording of the CV.
  • listing important awards, important memberships and offices held --a list is more readable than paragraphs
  • listing books published as formal references style: Author, title, Publisher, year ISBN if possible.
  • listing some major published papers, say how many total. Do not just link to Google, list the most prestigious papers. State the importance the journals are. Say how many other papers cited them.

and, most important, giving some 3rd party sources. A website at a university etc. can be one, but it cannot be the only one. Book reviews are fine, or a newspaper stories. Print or web is OK, but not from a list or a blog.

These is, very unfortunately, some prejudice against people from the academic world. I apologize for not having the time to help personally. DGG 01:14, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
