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

This template is an alternative to {{Citation needed}}, for the cases where a reference is alluded to, or given in part, but not specified in enough detail. The factuality may or may not be in question; this template is just about the completeness of the citation. For an article with numerous partial citations, consider instead the banner template {{Full citations needed}}.


{{Full citation needed|date=January 2020}}

The template should be placed outside <ref>...</ref> tags.
