How to format your references using the Chemosensory Perception citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Chemosensory Perception. 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
Cohen J (2014) Breakdown + Breakdown runners-up. Science 346:1450–1451
A journal article with 2 authors
Gurnett DA, Kurth WS (2005) Electron plasma oscillations upstream of the solar wind termination shock. Science 309:2025–2027
A journal article with 3 authors
Ergon T, Lambin X, Stenseth NC (2001) Life-history traits of voles in a fluctuating population respond to the immediate environment. Nature 411:1043–1045
A journal article with 5 or more authors
Trotter JA, Williams IS, Barnes CR, et al (2008) Did cooling oceans trigger Ordovician biodiversification? Evidence from conodont thermometry. Science 321:550–554

Books and book chapters

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

An authored book
Dickson EFG (2012) Personal Protective Equipment for Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Hazards. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ
An edited book
Hatakeyama T (2005) Thermal Properties of Green Polymers and Biocomposites. Springer Netherlands, Dordrecht
A chapter in an edited book
Myers J, Maresh M (2012) Clinical Management. In: Ovesen PG, Møller Jensen D (eds) Maternal Obesity and Pregnancy. Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, pp 43–62

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 Chemosensory Perception.

Blog post
Andrew D (2016) From Nostrils To Crocodile Blood – Ten Surprising Places To Look For Antibiotics. In: IFLScience. https://www.iflscience.com/health-and-medicine/from-nostrils-to-crocodile-blood-ten-surprising-places-to-look-for-antibiotics/. Accessed 30 Oct 2018

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 (1977) National School Lunch Program. 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
Large KG (2008) A study of Statewide Transfer and Articulation Reporting System (STARS) approved courses completed at an Alabama community college. Doctoral dissertation, Mississippi State University

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
MacFARQUHAR N (2017) Bared Breast Enthralls Future Czar, and Stokes a Culture War. New York Times A7

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Cohen 2014).
This sentence cites two references (Gurnett and Kurth 2005; Cohen 2014).

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

  • Two authors: (Gurnett and Kurth 2005)
  • Three or more authors: (Trotter et al. 2008)
