How to format your references using the Architectural Engineering and Design Management citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Architectural Engineering and Design Management. 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.
EndNoteDownload the output style file
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
Dallek, R. (2009). All the President’s scholarly men. Nature, 458(7238), 572–573.
A journal article with 2 authors
Tewksbury, J. J., & Nabhan, G. P. (2001). Seed dispersal. Directed deterrence by capsaicin in chilies. Nature, 412(6845), 403–404.
A journal article with 3 authors
DeBose, J. L., Lema, S. C., & Nevitt, G. A. (2008). Dimethylsulfoniopropionate as a foraging cue for reef fishes. Science (New York, N.Y.), 319(5868), 1356.
A journal article with 8 or more authors
He, H., Bourges, P., Sidis, Y., Ulrich, C., Regnault, L. P., Pailhès, S., Berzigiarova, N. S., Kolesnikov, N. N., & Keimer, B. (2002). Magnetic resonant mode in the single-layer high-temperature superconductor Tl2Ba2CuO(6+delta). Science (New York, N.Y.), 295(5557), 1045–1047.

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 Architectural Engineering and Design Management.

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. (2012). Information Technology: Department of Labor Could Further Facilitate Modernization of States’ Unemployment Insurance Systems (GAO-12-957). 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
Corral, D. C. (2010). A grant proposal: Parent and adolescent support group [Doctoral dissertation]. 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
Feeney, K. (2007, November 18). Cupcakes a Chicken Can Love. New York Times, NJ12.

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Dallek, 2009).
This sentence cites two references (Dallek, 2009; Tewksbury & Nabhan, 2001).

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

  • Two authors: (Tewksbury & Nabhan, 2001)
  • Three authors: (DeBose et al., 2008)
  • 6 or more authors: (He et al., 2002)
