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
Reichhardt T (2000) NASA pays the price of its dash for Mars. Nature 404:535
A journal article with 2 authors
Bose SK, Marder TB (2015) ORGANIC CATALYSIS. A leap ahead for activating C-H bonds. Science 349:473–474
A journal article with 3 authors
Kalka MB, Smith AR, Kalko EKV (2008) Bats limit arthropods and herbivory in a tropical forest. Science 320:71
A journal article with 5 or more authors
Cortázar D, Kunz C, Selfridge J, et al (2011) Embryonic lethal phenotype reveals a function of TDG in maintaining epigenetic stability. Nature 470:419–423

Books and book chapters

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

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 Chemosensory Perception.

Blog post
Fang J (2015) Distant Species Produce Hybrid 60 Million Years After Their Split. In: IFLScience. https://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/distant-species-produce-hybrid-60-million-years-after-their-split/. 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 (1998) District of Columbia: Extent to Which Schools Receive Available Federal Education Grants. 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
Dillard C (2017) Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and Implementation Science. 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
Williams J (2017) The Way We Were (and Are and Could Be). New York Times BR4

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Reichhardt 2000).
This sentence cites two references (Reichhardt 2000; Bose and Marder 2015).

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

  • Two authors: (Bose and Marder 2015)
  • Three or more authors: (Cortázar et al. 2011)
