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

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
Ledford, Heidi. 2006. “Liquid Fuel Synthesis: Making It up as You Go Along”. Nature 444: 677–78.
A journal article with 2 authors
Marone, Chris and Eliza Richardson. 2006. “Geophysics. Do Earthquakes Rupture Piece by Piece or All Together?” Science (New York, N.Y.) 313: 1748–49.
A journal article with 3 authors
Dong, Zigang, Christina W. Hoven and Allan Rosenfield. 2005. “Lessons from the Past”. Nature 433: 573–74.
A journal article with 11 or more authors
Reich, David, Richard E. Green, Martin Kircher, Johannes Krause, Nick Patterson, Eric Y. Durand, Bence Viola, et al. 2010. “Genetic History of an Archaic Hominin Group from Denisova Cave in Siberia”. Nature 468: 1053–60.

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 Anglia.

Blog post
Andrew, Elise. 2015. “Sound Of Mother’s Voice Bolsters Brain Development In Premature Infants”. IFLScience. IFLScience. February 24, 2015 <; [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. 2014. “Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle: Introducing Competition into National Security Space Launch Acquisitions”. GAO-14-259T. 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
McAlpine, Teresa Elizabeth. 2008. “College Students and Career: An Exploration of Vocational Anticipatory Socialization”. Doctoral dissertation, Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina.

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
Gorman, James. 2017. “Crawl Space: Terror: Available Now In Three New Styles”. New York Times, August 4, 2017.

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Ledford 2006).

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

  • Two authors: (Marone and Richardson 2006)
  • Three authors: (Dong, Hoven, and Rosenfield 2005)
  • 4 or more authors: (Reich et al. 2010)
