How To Format A Wikibook Entry

Page history last edited by Jim Davies 11 years, 4 months ago

You should create an account for wikibooks so that you can edit.

 

If you need to create a new page, you must find a page to link it from. It might be the top page, or it might be a linked off of a chapter already written. If your page is called "Title" then create a link by editing the page you want the link to appear in and insert:

     [[/Title/]]

When you save the page, Title will appear and be clickable. When you click it, it will prompt you to create a new page. Then you will be brought to the page edit screen.

 

To edit an existing page, simply click the "edit" tab at the top of the page.

Study Questions

 

It's good to have study questions at the bottom of each page. Use code like this to make the table:

{| class="wikitable"
|-
! Study Questions !! Answers
|-
| Question 1 || Answer 1
|-
|}

Making References

 

It's good to have references in the entry to back up what you say.

In the reference section of the entry, use APA style (American Psychological Association). 

 

learn from this example: 

Its immediate goal is to understand behavior and mental processes by researching and establishing both general principles and specific cases.<ref name="Psychology">Hockenbury & Hockenbury. Psychology. Worth Publishers, 2010.</ref> 

 

Then, at the bottom of the page, include this code:

 

==References==

{{Reflist|2}}

 

 

Turning in your entry

     If you are creating an entry for an assignment, you should email a link to your completed wikibook chapter page.

     Since someone could come back and edit your work, you should send a link to your most recent edit.
