Help:Citation Style Vancouver

From Safer nicotine wiki

Citation Style Vancouver (CSVAN) is a method of referencing Wikipedia articles using a series of templates based on the Vancouver system.

The use of CSVAN or of templates is not compulsory; per WP:CITEVAR:

Citations within each Wikipedia article should follow a consistent style. Editors may choose any style they want. The English Wikipedia does not have a house style, so it need not match what is done in other articles.


CSVAN consists of the following set of templates:

  • {{vcite book}} for books
  • {{vcite conference}} for conference proceedings
  • {{vcite journal}} for articles in academic journals and similar periodicals
  • {{vcite news}} for articles in newspapers and similar news sources
  • {{vcite web}} for web pages, that is, sources published as part of web sites that are not books, journals, or news
