Re: How to cite information in Wikipedia? (for a High School study guide)



<<Sorry bothering the Lists, but I would like to know how to cite information I only saw in Wikipedia in a more or less formal way.>>

Writing the straightforward truth is a good option! Cite Wikipedia and include the web address of the relevant page. My web stuff on cynodonts has been cited in a couple of thoroughly respectable publications as having been helpful in some way or other, and those authors blamed me and cited the url.

Dear all,
Sorry bothering the Lists, but I would like to know how to cite
information I only saw in Wikipedia in a more or less formal way.
Thank you very much in advance to those who respond.
