How to format your references using the Artificial Intelligence Review citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Artificial Intelligence Review. 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.
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
Bjorn G (2008) Ready, set, hire. Nature 451:740–741
A journal article with 2 authors
Sung S, Amasino RM (2004) Vernalization in Arabidopsis thaliana is mediated by the PHD finger protein VIN3. Nature 427:159–164
A journal article with 3 authors
Bylicka B, Chruściński D, Maniscalco S (2014) Non-Markovianity and reservoir memory of quantum channels: a quantum information theory perspective. Sci Rep 4:5720
A journal article with 5 or more authors

Books and book chapters

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

An authored book
Pelto M (2017) Recent Climate Change Impacts on Mountain Glaciers. John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, Chichester, UK
An edited book
Butler M, Jones CB, Romanovsky A, Troubitsyna E (eds) (2006) Rigorous Development of Complex Fault-Tolerant Systems. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg
A chapter in an edited book

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 Artificial Intelligence Review.

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 (1996) Higher Education: Tuition Increasing Faster Than Household Income and Public Colleges’ Costs. U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
Chellamuthu VK (2015) Structured Population Models: Numerical Methods and Application to Frogs Infected with Chytridiomycosis. Doctoral dissertation, University of Louisiana

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
Barron J (2017) A Call to Action After Swastikas Are Carved Into a Church Door. New York Times A17

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Bjorn 2008).
This sentence cites two references (Sung and Amasino 2004; Bjorn 2008).

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

  • Two authors: (Sung and Amasino 2004)
  • Three or more authors: (Volkov et al. 2005)
