Hello Ana,

I am delighted to see that you have done some editing. I have done a tiny bit of tweaking to match the format. The referencing (described here in outline) is probably the most tricky -- if you haven't figured it out. I tend toward over-referencing and I generally think this is best-- as it avoids putting things one remembers incorrectly into the wiki.

If you have any questions send me an email or post it on my talk page. Michael (talk) 17:33, 16 February 2015 (EST)

Citing textbooks

I have a set of templates for citing textbooks. I just created one for Joseph's book (if you want a closer look -- click here: Template:Ref Joseph).

The useage is:

{{Ref Joseph|123}}

Where Ref Joseph is the name of the template and 123 is the page number in Joseph's book. The result is the following:

Joseph, Jeffrey T. (2006). Diagnostic Neuropathology Smears. Wolters Kluwer. pp. 123. ISBN 978-0781786478.

Other books

I previously created one for Perry's book (see Template:Ref_PSNP). You can redirect templates like regular pages. So:

{{Ref Perry|123}}


{{Ref PSNP|123}}

Both generate the same thing:

Perry, Arie; Brat, Daniel J. (2010). Practical Surgical Neuropathology: A Diagnostic Approach: A Volume in the Pattern Recognition series (1st ed.). Churchill Livingstone. pp. 123. ISBN 978-0443069826.

If you want a template for another textbook feel free to try creating one -- there is no way to break things. Preceeding said, I realize that the templates may seem a bit complicated. If you don't feel comfortable -- let me know the name of the book and I can create one quickly.

You can see how I reference the Perry textbook in the article oligodendroglioma.

I hope the above explains it well. If you have any questions -- don't hesitate to post another message. Michael (talk) 00:25, 18 February 2015 (EST)
