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

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
Mann, Charles C. “Archaeology. Mystery towers in Peru are an ancient solar calendar.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 315.5816 (2007): 1206–1207.
A journal article with 2 authors
Jørgensen, Helle F., and Amanda G. Fisher. “Can controversies be put to REST?” Nature 467.7311 (2010): E3-4; discussion E5.
A journal article with 3 authors
Arakawa, Hiroshi, Jessica Hauschild, and Jean-Marie Buerstedde. “Requirement of the activation-induced deaminase (AID) gene for immunoglobulin gene conversion.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 295.5558 (2002): 1301–1306.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Christopherson, Kent W., 2nd et al. “Modulation of hematopoietic stem cell homing and engraftment by CD26.” Science (New York, N.Y.) 305.5686 (2004): 1000–1003.

Books and book chapters

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

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 Angelaki.

Blog post
Andrews, Robin. “CRISPR Gene-Editing Reveals How Our Fingers And Toes Evolved From Fins.” IFLScience. IFLScience, 18 Aug. 2016. Online. Internet. 30 Oct. 2018. . Available: https://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/crispr-geneediting-reveals-fingers-toes-evolved-fins/.

Reports

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. Information and Technology Management: Achieving Sustained and Focused Governmentwide Leadership. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, April 3, 2001.

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
Wirtz, Yannick. “Strain Variation between the Monterey and Sisquoc Formations, Southern Santa Maria Basin, California, USA: Implications for Structural Assessment of Fold and Thrust Belts.” Doctoral dissertation, Long Beach, CA: California State University, Long Beach, 2017.

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
Crow, Kelly. “A Shelter Gets a Cold Shoulder In a ‘Pastoral’ Residential Area.” New York Times, 9 Sep. 2001: 144.
