Usage

This template can be used in a dictionary entry to provide a quotation from a journal or other serial publication, including a magazine or a newspaper.

For citations in reference sections and on talk pages, use {{cite-journal}}.

Certain basic parameters can be used in the template without any named parameters, as follows:

#* {{quote-journal|[lang]|[year]|[author]|[title]|[journal]|[url]|[page]|[text]|[translation]}}

This will not work if any of the parameters contains an equals ("=") sign. The value of any parameter containing an equals sign must be surrounded by <nowiki> tags, like this: "<nowiki>http://foo.com?id=bar</nowiki>". Alternatively, use a named parameter such as url.

The following example:

{{quote-journal|en|title=Art VIII.—Who are the True Conservatives?|journal=The Quarterly Christian Spectator|location=New Haven, Conn.|publisher=Published for the proprietor by Hezekiah Howe [...]|month=November|year=1838|volume=X|issue=IV|page=608|pageurl=https://books.google.com/books?id=S7MAAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA608|oclc=5090641|text=They have guarded a few minds against '''sciolism''' and pretension in philosophy, and they have given a new and more imposing air to '''sciolism''' itself, and placed in the hands of the charlatan enchantments and magical arts, which hold fast its victims with a potency never granted to an inferior spell. There is no '''sciolism''' now which is more dangerous than that which is so very careful to inform us of its entire freedom from all that is superficial, {{...}}}}

produces this:

1838 November, “Art VIII.—Who are the True Conservatives?”, in The Quarterly Christian Spectator, volume X, number IV, New Haven, Conn.: Published for the proprietor by Hezekiah Howe [...], OCLC 5090641, page 608:
They have guarded a few minds against sciolism and pretension in philosophy, and they have given a new and more imposing air to sciolism itself, and placed in the hands of the charlatan enchantments and magical arts, which hold fast its victims with a potency never granted to an inferior spell. There is no sciolism now which is more dangerous than that which is so very careful to inform us of its entire freedom from all that is superficial, []

Parameters

All parameters are optional except those marked "Mandatory", and may contain inline interwiki or external links as needed.

Parameter Remarks
1 A comma-separated list of language codes indicating the language(s) of the quoted text; for a list of the codes, see Wiktionary:List of languages. If the language is other than English, the template will indicate this fact by displaying "(in [language])" (for one language), or "(in [language] and [language])" (for two languages), or "(in [language], [language] ... and [language])" (for three or more languages). The entry page will also be added to a category in the form "Category:[Language] terms with quotations" for the first listed language (unless termlang is specified, in which case that language is used for the category, or nocat is specified, in which case the page will not be added to any category). The first listed language also determines the font to use and the appropriate transliteration to display, if the text is in a non-Latin script.

Use |worklang= to specify the language(s) that the journal itself is written in: see below.

The parameter |lang= is a deprecated synonym for this parameter; please do not use. If this is used, all numbered parameters move down by one.

author
or
last and first
The name of the author of the journal article quoted. Use either author, or last and first (for the first name, and middle names or initials), not both. Additional authors can be added using the parameters author2 to author5, or last2 and first2 to last5 and first5.
authorlink The name of an English Wikipedia article about the author, which will be linked to the name(s) specified using author. Additional articles can be linked to other authors' names using the parameters authorlink2 to authorlink5. Do not add the prefix ":en:" or "w:".

Alternatively, link each person's name directly, like this: "author=[[w:Kathleen Taylor (biologist)|Kathleen Taylor]]" or "author={{w|Samuel Johnson}}".

coauthors The names of the coauthor(s) of the journal article. Separate multiple names with semicolons.
trans, translator, or translators The name(s) of the translator(s) of the journal article. Separate multiple names with semicolons.
editor
or
editors
The name(s) of the editor(s) of the journal. Separate multiple names with semicolons.
quotee The name of the person being quoted, if the whole quoted text is a quotation of someone other than the author.
title The title of the journal article.
titleurl The URL or web address of an external webpage to link to the title of the journal article. For example, if the journal has no page numbers, the webpage can be linked to the title using this parameter. Do not link to any website that has content in breach of copyright.
trans-title If the title of the journal article is not in English, this parameter can be used to provide an English translation of the title.
format The format that the journal article is in.
url The URL or web address of an external website containing the full text of the journal article. Do not link to any website that has content in breach of copyright.
archiveurl and archivedate
or
accessdate
Use archiveurl and archivedate (which must be used together) to indicate the URL or web address of a webpage on a website such as the Internet Archive or Perma.cc at which the webpage has been archived, and the date on which the webpage was archived.

Alternatively, if the webpage cannot be archived, use accessdate to indicate when its URL was accessed.

journal
or
work
The name of the journal. In addition to journal or work, magazine, newspaper or periodical can also be used.
trans-journal If the name of the journal is not in English, this parameter can be used to provide an English translation of the name.
series and seriesvolume The series that the journal belongs to, and the volume number of the journal within the series.
edition The edition of the journal quoted, for example, "2nd" or "3rd corrected and revised". If quoting from the first edition of the journal, it is usually not necessary to specify this fact.
location
or
city
The location where or, more specifically, the city in which the journal was published. If more than one location is stated, separate the locations with semicolons, like this: "London; New York, N.Y.".
publisher The name of one or more publishers of the journal article. If more than one publisher is stated, separate the names with semicolons.
year (and month)
or
date
Mandatory: the year (and month), or date, that the journal article was published. Use either year (and month), or date, not both. Type |year=a. 1665, |year=c. 1665, or |year=p. 1665 to indicate a publication year that is ante (before), circa (about), or post (after) the year specified.

If no year or date is specified, the template displays the message "(Can we date this quote?)". The message can be suppressed using "|nodate=yes", but it is recommended that you try to provide a date or approximate date rather than do so.

year_published If year is used to state the year when the original version of the journal issue was published, year_published can be used to state the year in which the version quoted from was published, for example, "|year=1665|year_published=2005".
start_year
or
start_date
If the journal issue has a date that spans a range, such as "1 December 2015 – 31 January 2016", "1–7 January 2016" or "2015–2016", use start_year or start_date together with year or date like this: "|start_date=1 December 2015|date=31 January 2016" or "|start_year=2015|year=2016".
volume
or
volume_plain
The volume number of the journal. Use volume_plain if you wish to suppress the word volume appearing in front of the volume number and identify the volume in some other way (for example, "book II").
issue The issue number of the journal, for example, the "2" in "volume 4, number 2".
section Use this parameter to identify a page or other portion of a journal article that does not have page numbers, for example, "Act 2, scene 4".
sectionurl The URL or web address of the webpage containing the section of the journal article referred to. The section number will be linked to this webpage.
page
or
pages
The page number or range of page numbers of the journal article. Use page to indicate a single page, and pages to indicate a range of pages. For example, "|pages=1–2" will display "pages 1–2". Use an en dash to separate the page numbers in the range.
pageurl The URL or web address of the webpage containing the page(s) of the journal article referred to. The page number(s) will be linked to this webpage.
column
or
columns
The column number or range of column numbers of the journal. Use an en dash to separate the column numbers in the range.
columnurl The URL or web address of the webpage containing the column(s) of the journal referred to. The column number(s) will be linked to this webpage.
bibcode, doi, isbn, issn, jstor, lccn, oclc, pmid, ssrn, and/or id The Bibcode, digital object identifier (DOI), JSTOR number, Library of Congress Control Number (LCCN), Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) number (which can be looked up at the WorldCat website), PubMed Identifier (PMID), and/or Social Sciences Research Network (SSRN) number of the journal article, and/or the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) or International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) of the journal.

Use id for an identifier other than the ones listed above.

laysummary, laysource and laydate Use laysummary to provide a summary of the journal article suitable for a layperson, and laysource and laydate to indicate the source and the publication date of the summary.
text or passage The portion of the journal article being quoted. Highlight the term defined in bold in the quoted text like this: "'''humanities'''".
worklang A comma-separated list of language codes indicating the language(s) that the journal is written in, if different from the quoted text; for a list of the codes, see Wiktionary:List of languages.
termlang A language code indicating the language of the term being illustrated, if different from the quoted text; for a list of the codes, see Wiktionary:List of languages. If specified, this language is the one used when adding the page to a category of the form "Category:[Language] terms with quotations"; otherwise, the first listed language specified using 1 is used. Only specify this parameter if the language of the quotation is different from the term's language, e.g. a Middle English quotation used to illustrate a modern English term or an English definition of a Vietnamese term in a Vietnamese-English dictionary.
nocat Use nocat=y or nocat=1 or nocat=on to suppress adding the page to a category of the form "Category:[Language] terms with quotations". This should not normally be done.
brackets Use "brackets=on" to surround a quotation with brackets. This indicates that the quotation either contains a mere mention of a term (for example, "some people find the word manoeuvre hard to spell") rather than an actual use of it (for example, "we need to manoeuvre carefully to avoid causing upset"), or does not provide an actual instance of a term but provides information about related terms.
t or translation If the quoted text is not in English, this parameter can be used to provide an English translation of it.
lit If the quoted text is not in English and the translation supplied using t or translation is idiomatic, this parameter can be used to provide a literal English translation.
footer This parameter can be used to specify arbitrary text to insert in a separate line at the bottom, to specify a comment, footnote, etc.
tr or transliteration If the quoted text uses a different writing system from the Latin alphabet (the usual alphabet used in English), this parameter can be used to provide a transliteration of it into the Latin alphabet. Note that many languages provide an automatic transliteration if this argument is not specified.
subst Phonetic substitutions to be applied to handle irregular transliterations in certain languages with a non-Latin writing system and automatic transliteration (e.g. Russian and Yiddish). If specified, should be one or more substitution expressions separated by commas, where each substitution expression is of the form FROM//TO (FROM/TO is also accepted), where FROM specifies the source text in the source script (e.g. Cyrillic or Hebrew) and TO is the corresponding replacement text, also in the source script. The intent is to respell irregularly-pronounced words phonetically prior to transliteration, so that the transliteration reflects the pronunciation rather than the spelling. The substitutions are applied in order. Note that Lua patterns can be used in FROM and TO in lieu of literal text; see WT:LUA. See also {{ux}} for an example of using subst (the usage is identical to that template).
indent Instead of using wikitext outside the quotation template to indent it (for example, "#* {{quote-journal|..."), you can use this parameter to specify the indent inside the template (for example, "{{quote-journal|indent=#*|...")
