  • language - default is "English" but could put many:  language=English or French (etc.).
  • website - Just put the full URL; e.g., http://www.nature.com . This field automatically displays the name "Journal homepage." If you wish to display a different name, or to include additional links, use parameters "link1" & "link1-name" ("link2" etc.). For example, show "About Nature":
   | website = http://www.nature.com
   | link1 = http://www.nature.com/nature/about/index.html
   | link1-name = About Nature
  • title - The infobox displays the journal title at the top, wrapping to keep the infobox narrow. To custom-wrap a long title, insert "<br>". Otherwise, the title will auto-wrap after all words that fit:
   | title = Canadian Journal of<br>Earth Sciences
  • country - such as "Canada".

 In general, any parameter can be custom-wrapped by inserting a "<br>" wherever needed.
