Usage

Do not substitute this template.

The {{citation needed span}} template may be used when there is unsourced text that should be attributed to a reference citation. Unlike the template {{citation needed}}, this template attaches explicitly to a portion of text, for example one or more specific sentences, by surrounding the text with the template. This is especially useful for flagging multiple facts or multiple sentences as needing citation, and for singling out a specific fact that is unsourced among many sourced ones.

Once a citation is added, please remove this template from the surrounded text.

{{citation needed span|text=Passage(s) to be sourced|date=September 2021}}

The date is optional, so the minimal syntax is:

{{citation needed span|text=Passage(s) to be sourced}}

Example of usage:

Sourced material. {{citation needed span|text=Passage to be sourced. Another passage to be sourced.}} More sourced material.
Sourced material. Passage to be sourced. Another passage to be sourced.[citation needed] More sourced material.
Sourced material. {{citation needed span|text=Passage to be sourced. Another passage to be sourced.|date=September 2021}} More sourced material.

Compare usage of {{Citation needed}}:

Sourced material. Passage to be sourced.{{Citation needed}} Another passage to be sourced.{{Citation needed}} More sourced material.
Sourced material. Passage to be sourced.[citation needed] Another passage to be sourced.[citation needed] More sourced material.

Parameters

There are three parameters to the template:

|text=
the text needing attribution.
|date=
the date in the form September 2021. If omitted a bot will add it within a day or so.
|reason=
reason for the citation request. If omitted, "This claim needs references to reliable sources" will be used. This text is shown as a tooltip.

Categorization of articles

Adding this template to an article places the article into Category:All articles with unsourced statements, Category:Articles with unsourced statements, and/or dated subcategories thereof.
