How to Cite Papers on Wikipedia

Citing your journal article on Wikipedia is a great way to safeguard your edits and also to increase the visibility of the original article. Luckily, Wikipedia has installed a Citation function in the Edit toolbar which makes it possible to create citations quickly just by knowing identifying information. The following animated GIF shows how to insert a PubMed citation in Wikipedia without writing any code.
After you press the Insert button and complete your edits, it's absolutely essential that you scroll down to the bottom of the Edit page and save your changes. If you don't do this, all your edits will be lost! After saving, your version of the page will be saved forever on the article's history tab. You might want to save a copy of your edits on your own hard drive as well.
