Using reference management software

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
Ainsworth, Claire. 2015. “Agriculture: A New Breed of Edits”. Nature 528: S15-6.
A journal article with 2 authors

Blog post
Davis, Josh. 2016. “North American Tribes Temporarily Halt Construction Of Pipeline In North Dakota”. IFLScience. IFLScience. September 8, 2016 <> [accessed 30 October 2018].


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. 2000. “Procedures for Updating Arbitrator Disclosure Information”. GAO-01-162R. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office.

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
Aldaco, Rosaevelia. 2010. “Latinas Attainment of Higher Education: What Factors Contribute to Their Success?” Doctoral dissertation, Long Beach, CA: California State University, Long Beach.

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
(nyt), Sophia Kishkovsky. 2005. “World Briefing | Europe: Russia: 21 Miners Killed In Blast”. New York Times, February 10, 2005.

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites one reference (Ainsworth 2015).
This sentence cites two references (Ainsworth 2015; Yao and Cohen 2002).

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:

  • Two authors: (Yao and Cohen 2002)
  • Three authors: (Mills, Robins, and Lipsitch 2004)
  • 4 or more authors: (Gleyzes et al. 2007)
