UsageEdit

This template creates a very concise reference citation to a specific numbered page at the Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man database.

{{OMIM4|#####}}, where "#####" is the OMIM page number.

Results: 12345

This template is good to use when there is a long series of OMIM citations in a row and one wishes to be as concise as possible with them. Generally, it should be immediately preceded by use of the {{OMIM}} template, or {{OMIM3}} if {{OMIM}} was already used earlier in the article/section; without preceding {{OMIM2}} with one or the other, it will be unclear to the reader what the citation is citing. {{OMIM2}} is also used (and was created) for Template:Infobox Disease.

This template is good to use when there is a long series of OMIM citations in a row in an infobox and one wishes to be as concise as possible with them. Generally, {{OMIM3}} (or its plainlinks variant {{OMIM5}}, or an explanatory heading such as "OMIM: "; without something like this preceding {{OMIM4}}, it will be unclear to many readers what the citation is citing. {{OMIM4}} is a plainlinks (no external link icon) variant of {{OMIM2}}, which was created for Template:Infobox Disease. {{OMIM4}} is only intended for use in infoboxes where it is already clear that the links are external, and in regular article prose; in situations where the internal/external nature of the link could be unclear, {{OMIM2}} or other related template should be used instead.

Examples of use:

  • An infobox where the OMIM (among others) templates appear in a "External information" table cell.
  • An infobox without such a table cell heading, but in which the first OMIM citation uses {{OMIM}}, {{OMIM2}}, or {{OMIM3}}, which do have external link icons.
