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
Pearson, Helen. 2003. “Biotech Firms Pin Hopes on Defence”. Nature 422: 790.
A journal article with 2 authors
Loog, Mart and David O. Morgan. 2005. “Cyclin Specificity in the Phosphorylation of Cyclin-Dependent Kinase Substrates”. Nature 434: 104–108.
A journal article with 3 authors
Koo, Bonwoo, Carol Nottenburg and Philip G. Pardey. 2004. “Intellectual Property. Plants and Intellectual Property: An International Appraisal”. Science (New York, N.Y.) 306: 1295–1297.
A journal article with 11 or more authors
Park, Soojin, Dong Hyun Lee, Ji Xu, Bokyung Kim, Sung Woo Hong, Unyong Jeong, Ting Xu and Thomas P. Russell. 2009. “Macroscopic 10-Terabit-per-Square-Inch Arrays from Block Copolymers with Lateral Order”. Science (New York, N.Y.) 323: 1030–1033.

Books and book chapters

Blog post
Andrew, Elise. 2015. “Two Children Paralyzed In First European Outbreak Of Polio For Five Years”. IFLScience. IFLScience. September 3, 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. 1977. “Improved Reporting Needed on National Aeronautics and Space Administration Projects”. PSAD-77-54. 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
Huffer, Donelle Joy. 2013. “A Spatial Analysis and Zooarchaeological Interpretation of Archaeological Bison Remains in the Southwest and the Wildlife Management Implications for the House Rock Valley Bison Herd in Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona”. Doctoral dissertation, Tucson, AZ: University of Arizona.

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
Kishkovsky, Sophia. 2003. “MOSCOW: THE BALLERINA SUES”. New York Times, October 27, 2003.

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Pearson 2003).
This sentence cites two references (Pearson 2003; Loog and Morgan 2005).

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

  • Two authors: (Loog and Morgan 2005)
  • Three authors: (Koo, Nottenburg, and Pardey 2004)
  • 4 or more authors: (Park et al. 2009)
