Template:Synthesis inline span

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. [improper synthesis?]

Template documentation [view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template tag will categorise tagged articles into Category:Articles that may contain original research but not this template itself. This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopaedic content.

When to use [ edit ]

Use this tag only if:

  1. an inline citation to a source is given,
  2. you have checked the source,
  3. the source does not support what is contained in the article, and
  4. despite the source not supporting the article, the source still contains useful information on the topic.

If the source given is an unreachable website, keep the source and mark it with {{Dead link}} instead. See Wikipedia:Link rot and WP:DEADREF for more information.

If no source is given, and you believe that an inline citation is necessary for that information, then use {{Citation needed}}.

If the source has absolutely no relevance to any part of the article, delete the reference and replace with {{Citation needed}}.

How to use [ edit ]


The template should be placed outside the reference (<ref> ... </ref>), within the article's text:

{{synthesis inline span|text=place text that is improper synthesis here|date=March 2021}}
