cite arXiv is for formatting references to preprints at the arXiv. It links to the abstract at

To use the template, you need only specify the 'eprint' parameter. Once you save the page, a bot will detect the citation and complete it automatically.

Common parameters, horizontal format

{{cite arXiv |last= |first= |authorlink= |eprint= |title= |class= |year= |version= |accessdate= }}

  • last1, last2, last3...: Surnames of the author(s)
  • first1, first2, first3...: Forenames of the author(s)
    • author1, author2, author3 etc: Name(s) of the author(s) if last-first format is not appropriate (e.g. some east Asian names)
  • authorlink1, authorlink2...: Name of author's wikipedia page. Will be used to make author name a link, if present. Optional.
  • eprint (Mandatory): Eprint identifier, without any "arXiv:" prefix. Prior to April 2007, the identifiers included a classification, an optional two-letter subdivision, and a 7-digit YYMMNNN uear, month, and sequence number of submission in that category. E.g. gr-qc/0610068 or math.GT/0309136. After April 2007, the format was changed to a simple YYMM.NNNN.
  • class: arXiv classification, e.g. hep-th. Optional. To be used only with new-style eprint identifiers, that do not include the classification.
  • title: Title of the cited paper.
  • year: Year of publication. Optional.
  • version: arXiv version, including leading "v", e.g. "v1". Optional.
  • accessdate: Date of web access. Optional, but required by many citation standards.

The template also supports most of the parameters supported by Template:Cite journal or Template:Citation, and uses the style of {{cite journal}}. However, once a paper is published, it is recommended to use one of those templates (instaed of cite arXiv), as they allow references to be more readily maintained by automated programs (bots).
