What Journalists Should Know About Wikipedia — A Primer

from Poynter

A common question we often get is “Should I cite Wikipedia directly as a source?” The answer to that is a resounding no. Wikipedia is a resource and is incredibly useful in conjunction with other resources. But like any other tertiary source, Wikipedia can introduce you to a topic. We’d advise that you follow the citations listed at the bottom of most articles and cite them instead. Still, if you have to cite a Wikipedia article, use a “permanent link,” available in the left sidebar on the desktop site, so that your readers will be reading the same version of the article as you did. more
