[specify]


Use this tag for information that needs citations to make it complete, or quotations that are used without citations, as per Wikipedia:Citing sources.

Do not use this tag in order to label text which appears doubtful or false, especially in the case of biographies of living people (see this section of WP:3RR as well). Otherwise please use {{verify source}}.

Regarding the unsourced or poorly sourced information:

  1. if it is likely true, but needs specificity, you may use {{specify}}
  2. if it is not doubtful, you may use {{fact}} or {{citequote}} tag to ask for better citation in order to make the article complete.
  3. if it is doubtful but not too harmful to the whole article, you may use {{verify source}} tag to ask for source verification.
  4. If it is doubtful and (quite) highly harmful, you may move it to the talk page and ask for a source.
  5. If it is very doubtful and very harmful, you may remove it directly without the need of moving it to the talk page first.

To find all the articles that use this template, please visit What links here. For articles which lack sources, please visit :Category:Articles lacking sources.

This template is a self-reference and so is part of the Wikipedia project rather than the encyclopedic content.
