A nugget is a piece of information that is meant to be maintained in the original form and has distinguished authors. This is unlike other pages like variables, assessments, or encyclopedia articles, which evolve in time and can be improved by anyone. In addition, like encyclopedia articles, strict attribute structure and strict scientific method is NOT applied to nuggets.

A nugget can be a part of another page, or it can be a separate page. If a nugget is clearly linked to another page (such as an original email discussion about a particular variable), it should be located on the respective page (e.g., the talk page of the variable). However, if the nugget is more like an indipendent contribution, it should have a page of its own. This makes it possible to protect it from edits by others.
