History Journals[]

Do you plan to start a peer-reviewed history journal at

No I'm intending to start it here, as the goal of Wikibooks is clearly to produce book-length tracts rather than short articles (indeed short articles often find themselves culled). Actually I've already made a start on one, but I'm not quite sure how the multiple pages system works... Garrett 03:13, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)
If you are in a rush you can use Wiki Journal:Article Content Outline. However, I suggest you eventually follow the instructions at Template Journal for how to start a new wiki journal. I would like some feedback about how easy it is for people to create a new journal. --JWSchmidt 03:22, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Well, I must say the process was harder than I thought. I've been editing Wikipedia/Wikibooks for many months, and yet I found the examples rather confusing. Goodness knows what someone new to wiki formatting would think.
I've put the page at The struggle for Greece: Marathon and Artemision, but some of the pages seem to indicate a short name should have been used. See what you think. Did I get it right after all? :)
I've got to go have dinner now. I'll dissect the flaws of the process and some possible solutions later tonight. Garrett 05:56, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I had a quick look at the new journal you started and the article you submitted to it ("The struggle for Greece"). They look fine. I hope to see a really exciting article about "blablabla". I'm sorry the process of creating a new journal was painful. Hopefully we can fix the process so that it is more intuitive. --JWSchmidt 13:35, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Journal article naming?[]

Capitalize the first letter and any proper nouns after that. Oh, and feel free to use curly apostrophes if you'd like. Sarge Baldy 03:31, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Oh, as for the journal formatting, I would say we don't need "volumes". Working on a wiki that seems like kind of an awkward concept, since that distinction is usually used to categorize things being distributed independently (here we can simply expand a journal indefinitely). It makes sense to me to just keep everything together (i.e., use, as you say, "Journal of Chocolate:Health Issues in the Factory: The Antipersonal Production and Verification of Vitametavegamin Ingredients"). Sarge Baldy 11:02, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, I'd say go ahead. If someone wants to argue for a volume system later that's fine, but in the meantime this is probably the best format. Sarge Baldy 11:15, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)


Maybe you should add one of your articles that looks nice to the tour as an example of an article. --JWSchmidt 12:21, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Thanx for the Hand[]

Sorry I goofed the initial journal article; thanx for giving me a hand. I'm sure I'll do better on the next one :) --Rck 00:34, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)


Hello Garrett, just letting you know I've promoted you to a sysop. Sarge Baldy 02:04, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)

help with Template:Preliminary draft[]

I added instructions to the title page and content page outlines for how to use Template:Preliminary draft. --JWSchmidt 20:54, 25 Jul 2005 (UTC)

There have been recurring problems with an article being saved over the preliminary draft template. (See template history.) I left an explanation of the problem with a possible solution on the article author's talk page. As the article is the new template, it has gotten a lot of exposure in a lot of journals! (See Initial draft) JCGonzales 06:36, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Article text moved to new page and template restored to latest 2005 version. JCGonzales 17:20, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

how do we do an appendix[]

hi guys, what's the best way to do an appendix to an article; for example, my colleague in Salem research added a chronology, that should really be part of the article, but she didn't hook it in with Journal of History and Classics:Salem revisited, because we were not quite sure how; for right now, she put it on the same page as the title page, but that's clearly not right. Please advise. --Rck 14:27, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You can ahave an unlimited number of wiki pages for an article. You can use an Article Content Outline to start a new page for your article that would hold the appendix. Give the new page its own name such as "Journal of History and Classics:Salem revisited: Appendix I". On your title page, add a link to any new page you add to your article. --JWSchmidt 16:24, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Formally published template[]

I like it. JCGonzales 00:32, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
