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
Townes, C.H.: Making waves. Nature. 432, 153 (2004)
A journal article with 2 authors
Mercer, J.M., Roth, V.L.: The effects of Cenozoic global change on squirrel phylogeny. Science. 299, 1568–1572 (2003)
A journal article with 3 authors
Khush, R.S., Leulier, F., Lemaitre, B.: Immunology. Pathogen surveillance--the flies have it. Science. 296, 273–275 (2002)
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Lee, R., Kermani, P., Teng, K.K., Hempstead, B.L.: Regulation of cell survival by secreted proneurotrophins. Science. 294, 1945–1948 (2001)

Books and book chapters

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

An authored book
Gee, S.: Fraud and Fraud Detection. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ (2014)
An edited book
Haemmerlé, O., Stapleton, G., Faron Zucker, C. eds: Graph-Based Representation and Reasoning: 22nd International Conference on Conceptual Structures, ICCS 2016, Annecy, France, July 5-7, 2016, Proceedings. Springer International Publishing, Cham (2016)
A chapter in an edited book
Sakhravi, R., Omran, M.T., Oommen, B.J.: On the Existence and Heuristic Computation of the Solution for the Commons Game. In: Nguyen, N.T. (ed.) Transactions on Computational Collective Intelligence XIV. pp. 71–99. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg (2014)

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: Commercial Space Launch Insurance: Views Differ on Need for Change to Insurance Approach but Clarification Is Needed. U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC (2016)

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
Wilson, B.: Scale effects and the determinants of parcel subdivision: A discrete -time hazard analysis, (2009)

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
Barnard, A., Kirkpatrick, D.D.: 5 Arab Nations Put U.S. in Jam As They Move to Isolate Qatar, (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].
