This review was done by Magicpiano. If an article is well-cited, the reviewer is assuming that the article reflects reasonably current scholarship, and deficiencies in the historical record that are documented in a particular area will be appropriately scored.

If an article is of high enough quality, do its images and media comply with image use policy and non-free content policy? Adherence to these is needed for Good Article or Featured Article consideration, and is apparently a common reason for nominations being quick-failed. No images or sound. Does it contain sufficient inline citations?
For an article to pass Good Article nomination, every paragraph possibly excepting those in the lead, and every direct quotation, should have at least one footnote. If appropriate, does it include Further Reading or Bibliography beyond the cited references? Article has references; no inline citations. Article length is not generally significant, although Featured Articles Candidates may be questioned for excessive length.
