Usage

cite arXiv is for formatting references to preprints at the arXiv. It links to the abstract at http://www.arxiv.org/abs/eprint.

Common parameters, horizontal format

{{cite arXiv |last= |first= |authorlink= |eprint= |title= |class= |year= |version= |accessdate= }}

  • last1, last2, last3...: Surnames of the author(s)
  • first1, first2, first3...: Forenames of the author(s)
    • author1, author2, author3 etc: Name(s) of the author(s) if last-first format is not appropriate (e.g. some east Asian names)
  • authorlink1, authorlink2...: Name of author's Wikipedia page. Will be used to make author name a link, if present. Optional.
  • eprint (Mandatory): Eprint identifier, without any "arXiv:" prefix. Prior to April 2007, the identifiers included a classification, an optional two-letter subdivision, and a 7-digit YYMMNNN uear, month, and sequence number of submission in that category. E.g. gr-qc/0610068 or math.GT/0309136. After April 2007, the format was changed to a simple YYMM.NNNN.
  • class: arXiv classification, e.g. hep-th. Optional. To be used only with new-style eprint identifiers, that do not include the classification.
  • title: Title of the cited paper.
  • year: Year of publication. Optional.
  • version: arXiv version, including leading "v", e.g. "v1". Optional.
  • accessdate: Date of web access. Optional, but required by many citation standards.

The template also supports most of the parameters supported by {{cite journal}} or {{citation}}, and uses the style of {{cite journal}}. However, once a paper is published, it is recommended to use one of those templates with, as journals have the finalized and reviewed paper. To preserve the arxiv link, add |id={{arxiv|eprint}} to the {{citation}}/{{cite journal}} templates.
