This template is used to convert an array of author names like "Thomas Kuhn, Imre Lakatos, Larry Laudan" into a pretty list of "Kuhn, Thomas; Lakatos, Imre and Laudan, Larry". If there are more than three authors, the "Kuhn, Thomas et al." will be returned.

NOTE: As any "printing" template, it doesn't store any values anywhere, but merely prints them on the page.


  • |authors= - a comma delimited list of authors.
  • |intro= - initial text that precedes the output, if at least some results exist.
  • |outro= - text that is appended to the output, if at least some results exist.
  • |default= - if, for any reason, the query returns no results, this will be printed instead.
