The simplest way to add this template to an article is to copy and paste {{Self-published|date=अगस्त 2020}} at the top of the article. To flag only an affected section, use {{Self-published|section|date=अगस्त 2020}}.

This template will categorise tagged articles into Category:Articles lacking reliable references.

Usageसंपादन

Use when multiple sources are self-published. Self-published means that the source was written and published by the same person or organization (e.g., a personal or corporate website) rather than by separate authors and publishers (e.g., news media websites or traditional book publishing).

Please try to improve the article or make a good faith attempt to verify the citations in question before adding this template, and discuss the matter on the talk page. If only one citation is problematic, or there is a desire to tag particular citations, consider using {{failed verification}} instead.

Articles that merely lack references or have POV problems should be flagged with some other template.

Technical detailsसंपादन

This template has two optional fields.

The first permits the user to specify what needs to be cited. For instance, if the entire article needs to be cited, a user would enter {{Self-published|article}}; but should the user wish to be more specific on which section of the article needs to be cited, then the user could enter {{Self-published|section called "Childhood"}}. Leaving the parameter undefined is acceptable, as it will print out the default text "article or section."

The second field is a date parameter, entered as "date=month year". Adding this sorts the article into subcategories of Category:Articles lacking reliable references, allowing the oldest problems to be identified and dealt with first. If the date parameter is omitted, a bot will add it later.

Note that order does not matter with respect to the above optional parameters. Both {{Self-published|section|date=अगस्त 2020}} and {{Self-published|date=अगस्त 2020|section}} will produce the same result.
