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

Well, there are some situations that I think everyone here will regard
as legitimate citation of Wikipedia article - for example, writing an
article about reliability of information in electronic encyclopedia or
wikis projects.

How to cite depends on the journal policy and citation standards used.

The Brazilian Technical Standards Association (ABNT) regulates
internet source citation as follow:
[Authors Name]. [Text title]. Available at: [URL]. Accessed on: [date].

WIKIPEDIA. Daspletosaurus. Available at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daspletosaurus. Accessed on: Jul. 20th
