This template is used to cite conference paper sources in Wikibooks books.

Usage edit

None of the parameters should be capitalized, in order to avoid the article being tagged as having a broken citation. For example, use "url", "title", etc. - not "URL", "Title", etc. When copying all parameters in either the vertical or horizontal layouts, delete those which are not needed.

Citations within a page should use consistent formats. However, there is no consensus about which format is best.

Common form with author(s) in a single parameter
{{cite conference |url= |title= |author= |authorlink= |coauthors= |date= |publisher= |booktitle= |pages= |location= |id= }}
Common form with first and last
{{cite conference |url= |title= |last1= |first1= |authorlink1= |last2= |first2= |authorlink2= |date= |publisher= |booktitle= |pages= |location= |id= }}
All parameters, horizontal layout

  • a page parameter:
    • either page: Page number if a multi-page article and referencing a single page. "page=5" produces p. 5.
    • or pages: Page numbers if a multi-page article and referencing more than one page. "pages=5–7" produces pp. 5–7. This is for listing the pages relevant to the citation, not a total number of pages.
    • or at: When the page prefix is unwanted. "at=Table 5" produces Table 5.
  • language: language of publication (don't specify "English" as this is the default).

  • doi: A digital object identifier for the document, such as 10.1038/news070508-7
    • Doilabel: If the doi contains some characters that must be escaped, use "doilabel" for the unescaped version.

  • accessdate: Full date when item was accessed. Should not be wikilinked.
  • quote: Relevant quote from online item.
  • ref: ID for anchor. By default, no anchor is generated. The ordinary nonempty value |ref=ID generates an anchor with the given ID; such a linkable reference can be made the target of wikilinks to full references, especially useful in short citations like shortened notes and parenthetical referencing. The special value |ref=harv generates an anchor suitable for the {{harv}} template; see anchors for Harvard referencing templates.
  • separator / postscript: The punctuation to use between fields / at the end of the citation
