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}}.

Sample templates[уреди]

Most commonly used parameters
#* {{quote-journal|author=|authorlink=|coauthors=|editor=|editors=|title=|journal=|url=|archiveurl=|archivedate=|location=|publisher=|start_date=|date=|doi=|isbn=|issn=|jstor=|oclc=|pmid=|volume=|issue=|page=|pages=|pageurl=|passage=|lang=}}
All available parameters
#* {{quote-journal|indent=|author=|authorlink=|author2=|authorlink2=|author3=|authorlink3=|author4=|authorlink4=|author5=|authorlink5=|last=|first=|last2=|first2=|last3=|first3=|last4=|first4=|last5=|first5=|coauthors=|quotee=|editor=|editors=|title=|titleurl=|trans-title=|journal=|trans-journal=|series=|seriesvolume=|url=|archiveurl=|archivedate=|format=|language=|city=|location=|publisher=|start_year=|start_date=|year=|year_published=|month=|date=|nodate=|accessdate=|bibcode=|doi=|isbn=|issn=|jstor=|lccn=|oclc=|pmid=|ssrn=|id=|volume=|volume_plain=|issue=|section=|sectionurl=|page=|pages=|pageurl=|column=|columns=|columnurl=|passage=|brackets=|translation=|transliteration=|lang=}}

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

#* {{quote-journal|[year]|[author]|[title]|[journal]|[url]|[page]|[passage]}}

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|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|passage=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 ((Please specify the language of the quote)), New Haven, Conn.: Published for the proprietor by Hezekiah Howe [...], OCLC 5090641, strana 608:
Lua грешка in Модул:languages/errorGetBy at line 14: Please specify a language or etymology language code in the first parameter; the value "<strong class="error"><span class="scribunto-error" id="mw-scribunto-error-51fddb02">Script error: The function &quot;first_lang&quot; does not exist.</span></strong>" is not valid (see Wiktionary:List of languages)..


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

Parameter Remarks
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.
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 passage quoted 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.
language The language that the journal article is written in. If the article is written in English, it is not necessary to specify this fact.
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
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.

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.
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)
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".
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".
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.
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.
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.
passage The portion of the journal article being quoted. Highlight the term defined in bold in the passage quoted like this: "'''humanities'''".
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.
translation If the passage quoted is not in English, this parameter can be used to provide an English translation of it.
transliteration If the passage quoted 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.
lang A code indicating the language of the quotation; for a list of the codes, see Wiktionary:List of languages. The entry page will be added to a category in the form "Category:[Language] terms with quotations".
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=#*|...")
