Most synthesis articles and original reports on Wikinews have a similar look. When preparing an article for publishing, this should be taken into consideration. In order of priority, these are:

  • two or more references in a source section
  • the date the article was written
  • wikilinks
  • categories
  • an infobox
  • an image with credit for the photographer/graphic designer

A good place to understand the look of Wikinews article is to read examples of published articles on the main page.
