Style conventions for medical topicsEdit

Wikipedia has a detailed Manual of Style for medicine-related articles.

Two elements in particular can help avoid common problems:

  • PMID references: for references to sources in PubMed, be sure to include the PMIDs within your citation. That way, other editors can easily track down and verify your sources. If other editors can't find your source, they may remove your work.
  • Recommended article sections: many common medicine-related topics have a recommended outline you should follow as starting points when structuring an article.
