A '''Wikipedia article''', or '''entry''', is a page that has [[encyclopedia|encyclopedic]] information on it. A well-written encyclopedia article identifies a notable encyclopedic topic, summarizes that topic comprehensively, contains references to reliable sources, and links to other related topics. Most articles consist of paragraphs and images, but they may also be formatted as [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Stand-alone lists|stand-alone lists]] or tables. These lists or tables are also considered articles for Wikipedia's purposes.

==Article title==
See [[Wikipedia:Article titles]] to learn how we title articles.
==Article scope==
Each article has a scope, which is what the article covers. The article should contain a readable summary of everything within the scope, given due weight, based on what [[wp:reliable|reliable sources]] say.
==Quality of articles==
Articles range greatly in quality, from as high as [[WP:FA|featured articles]] to as low as [[WP:CSD|candidates for speedy deletion]]. Some articles are quite lengthy and rich in [[wp:content|content]] while others are shorter (possibly [[Wikipedia:Stub|stubs]]) or of lesser quality.
{{Main|Wikipedia:Administration#Data structure and development}}
"Articles" belong to the '''main namespace''' of Wikipedia pages (also called "'''article namespace'''" or simply "'''mainspace'''").
The '''main namespace''', '''article namespace''', or '''mainspace''' is the [[Wikipedia:Namespace|namespace]] of Wikipedia that contains the encyclopedia proper—that is, where "live" Wikipedia articles reside, as opposed to [[Wikipedia:About the Sandbox|Sandbox]] pages.
The main namespace is the default namespace and does not use a prefix in article page names. This is distinct from other namespaces where page names are always prefixed by an indicator of the particular namespace in which the page resides. For example, all [[Wikipedia:User page|user pages]] are prefixed by <code>"'''User:'''"</code>, their [[Wikipedia:Talk page|talk pages]] by <code>'''"User talk:"'''</code> [[Wikipedia:Template namespace|templates]] by <code>'''"Template:"'''</code> and various types of internal administrative pages by <code>'''"Wikipedia:"'''</code> (such as this page). Thus, any page created ''without'' such a prefix will automatically be placed in the article namespace.
The main namespace does not include any pages in any of the specified [[wikipedia:namespace|namespace]]s that are used for particular purposes, such as:
* the ''talk'' namespaces for discussing what the content of articles in mainspace should be (for example, [[Talk:Mathematics]])
* the ''Wikipedia'' namespace, for material about meta subjects related to Wikipedia and is where [[WP:PAG|policies and guidelines]], [[WP:ESSAYS|essays]], [[WP:INFOPAGES|information]], and process pages reside, as well as other "meta" topics about editing Wikipedia (examples, [[WP:VERIFY]] and [[Wikipedia:Statistics]]);
* the ''Wikipedia talk'' namespace, for discussing what the content of pages in Wikipedia space should be, and interpretations of them (for example, [[Wikipedia talk:VERIFY]] and [[Wikipedia talk:Statistics]]);
* the ''special'' namespace, whose pages are created by the software on demand (see [[Help:Special page]]);
* the ''user'' namespace for pages that are used by individual Wikipedia writers (example, [[User:Example]]).
* the ''file'' namespace which is used for describing and attributing images (example, [[:File:Great Horned Owl.USFWS.jpg]])
* the ''MediaWiki'' namespace which is used to define shortcuts and other text strings used around Wikipedia (example [[MediaWiki:Wikimedia-copyrightwarning]])
But not all pages in the article namespace are considered to be articles; the most notable exceptions are:
* the [[Main Page]];
* thousands of [[Wikipedia:Disambiguation|disambiguation pages]], which are used to resolve naming conflicts;
* many millions of [[Wikipedia:redirect|redirect]] pages, including [[Wikipedia:Soft redirect|soft redirects]], which are used to re-route one page to another page;
* for wiki-statistical purposes, some extremely short and simple pages are not counted as articles. The criteria have varied over time.
Every page in the main namespace can have a companion [[Wikipedia:Talk page|talk page]], and these belong to the "Talk" namespace, i.e., the pagenames start with the prefix "Talk:", followed by the name of the page in the main namespace. For example, "[[Talk:Wikipedia]]" is the talk page for Wikipedia's article on [[Wikipedia]] itself.
==Lists of articles and statistics==
[[Special:AllPages]] has a list of all pages in the article namespace and [[Wikipedia:Statistics]] for statistics on Wikipedia and its growth.
The automatic definition used by the software at [[Special:Statistics]] is: '''any page that is in the article namespace, is not a [[Wikipedia:Redirect|redirect page]] and contains at least one wiki link'''. ''The statistics software currently has no method of detecting disambiguation pages, however; nor does it disregard [[Wikipedia:Stub|stub]]s (but in any case, many articles tagged as stubs are quite substantial) or stublists (lists templates with little or no content)''.
