This Citation Style 1 template is used to create citations for reports by government departments, instrumentalities, operated companies, etc..

These reports are to be published in the Wikipedia sense of verifiability: a responsible organisation must have fact checked them; and the selection process for publication must not have been automatic.
Examples include: government printed reports which lack ISSN or ISBN numbers, and reports from major semi-governmental instrumentalities that are freely circulating and available for verification, but which lack a formal ISBN / ISSN publication process.

Usage[edit source]

Copy a blank version to use. All parameter names must be in lowercase. Use the "|" (pipe) character between each parameter. Delete unused parameters to avoid clutter in the edit window. Some samples may include the current date. If the date is not current, then purge the page.

{{cite report |author= |author-link= |authors= |date= |title= |url= |publisher= |page= |docket= |access-date= |quote= }}

  • If a field name is listed in the Prerequisites column, it is a prerequisite for the field to the left.

Example[edit source]

  • {{cite report |title=Rhode Island Roads |publisher=Rhode Island Department of Public Works |date=1956}}
Rhode Island Roads (Report). Rhode Island Department of Public Works. 1956.

Parameters[edit source]

Syntax[edit source]

Nested parameters rely on their parent parameters:

  • parent
  • OR: parent2—may be used instead of parent
    • child—may be used with parent (and is ignored if parent is not used)
    • OR: child2—may be used instead of child (and is ignored if parent2 is not used)
Where aliases are listed, only one of the parameters may be defined; if multiple aliased parameters are defined, then only one will show.

By default, sets of fields are terminated with a period (.).

COinS[edit source]

This template embeds COinS metadata in the HTML output, allowing reference management software to retrieve bibliographic metadata.
