How to format your references using the European Journal of Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for European Journal of Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics (Eur J Drug Metab Pharmacokinet). For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

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
1. Türler A. Nuclear chemistry: Lawrencium bridges a knowledge gap. Nature. 2015;520:166–7.
A journal article with 2 authors
1. Sunami A, Kurokawa K. Recession Watch: No time for nationalism. Nature. 2009;457:960–1.
A journal article with 3 authors
1. Zhao B, Moore JS, Beebe DJ. Surface-directed liquid flow inside microchannels. Science. 2001;291:1023–6.
A journal article with 7 or more authors
1. Hinds BJ, Chopra N, Rantell T, Andrews R, Gavalas V, Bachas LG. Aligned multiwalled carbon nanotube membranes. Science. 2004;303:62–5.

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
1. Government Accountability Office. Review Of Reliability Of The Air Force Personnel Data System. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office; 1968 Jul. Report No.: B-164471.

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation

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

This sentence cites one reference [1].
This sentence cites two references [1,1].
This sentence cites four references [1,1,1,1].
