How to format your references using the Analysis and Mathematical Physics citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Analysis and Mathematical Physics. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

Typically you don't format your citations and bibliography by hand. The easiest way is to use a reference manager:

PaperpileThe citation style is built in and you can choose it in Settings > Citation Style or Paperpile > Citation Style in Google Docs.
EndNoteFind the style here: output styles overview
Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Knight, D.: Kinds of minds. Nature. 447, 149 (2007)
A journal article with 2 authors
Thompson, D.W., Wallace, J.M.: Regional climate impacts of the Northern Hemisphere annular mode. Science. 293, 85–89 (2001)
A journal article with 3 authors
Cacciuto, A., Auer, S., Frenkel, D.: Onset of heterogeneous crystal nucleation in colloidal suspensions. Nature. 428, 404–406 (2004)
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Silverstein, S.C., Dubner, J., Miller, J., Glied, S., Loike, J.D.: Teachers’ participation in research programs improves their students’ achievement in science. Science. 326, 440–442 (2009)

Books and book chapters

Here are examples of references for authored and edited books as well as book chapters.

An authored book
Tasman, A., Kay, J., Ursano, R.J.: The Psychiatric Interview. John Wiley & Sons, Oxford (2013)
An edited book
Bhowmik, M.K.: ‘Out of School’ Ethnic Minority Young People in Hong Kong. Springer, Singapore (2016)
A chapter in an edited book
Yee, N.S.: Toward the Goal of Personalized Therapy in Pancreatic Cancer by Targeting the Molecular Phenotype. In: El-Deiry, W.S. (ed.) Impact of Genetic Targets on Cancer Therapy. pp. 91–143. Springer, New York, NY (2013)

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Analysis and Mathematical Physics.

Blog post

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office: Compendium of Courses, 1997. U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC (1997)

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
Jackson, M.A.: An action research study of collaborative relationhips between psychotherapists and medical doctors, (2015)

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
Shpigel, B.: Reviving World Cup Hopes Out of Thin Air, (2017)

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by sequential numbers in square brackets:

This sentence cites one reference [1].
This sentence cites two references [1, 2].
This sentence cites four references [1–4].
