How to format your references using the European Neuropsychopharmacology citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for European Neuropsychopharmacology. 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
Knill, E., 2005. Quantum computing with realistically noisy devices. Nature 434, 39–44.
A journal article with 2 authors
Liu, L., Stegman, D.R., 2012. Origin of Columbia River flood basalt controlled by propagating rupture of the Farallon slab. Nature 482, 386–389.
A journal article with 3 authors
Bosch, R., van de Pol, M., Philp, J., 2015. Policy: Define biomass sustainability. Nature 523, 526–527.
A journal article with 4 or more authors
Rauhut, O.W.M., Remes, K., Fechner, R., Cladera, G., Puerta, P., 2005. Discovery of a short-necked sauropod dinosaur from the Late Jurassic period of Patagonia. Nature 435, 670–672.

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, 2009. Teacher Quality: Sustained Coordination among Key Federal Education Programs Could Enhance State Efforts to Improve Teacher Quality (No. GAO-09-593). 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
Conlin, L.D., 2012. Building shared understandings in introductory physics tutorials through risk, repair, conflict & comedy (Doctoral dissertation). University of Maryland, College Park, College Park, MD.

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
Marx, L., 2017. Two Different Cultures, One Modern Marriage. New York Times ST10.

In-text citations

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

This sentence cites one reference (Knill, 2005).
This sentence cites two references (Knill, 2005; Liu and Stegman, 2012).

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

  • Two authors: (Liu and Stegman, 2012)
  • Three or more authors: (Rauhut et al., 2005)
