How to format your references using the Evolutionary Anthropology citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Evolutionary Anthropology. 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
1 Turnpenny L. 2009. Journal club. A stem-cell researcher considers an accusation of dullness. Nature 459:143.
A journal article with 2 authors
1 He W, Ren T. 2013. Basilar membrane vibration is not involved in the reverse propagation of otoacoustic emissions. Sci Rep 3:1874.
A journal article with 3 authors
1 Hawks J et al. 2015. PALEOANTHROPOLOGY. Comment on “Early Homo at 2.8 Ma from Ledi-Geraru, Afar, Ethiopia.” Science 348:1326.

Books and book chapters

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

An authored book
1 Ruiz J-L. 2017. Supra-Gingival Minimally Invasive Dentistry. Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
An edited book
1 Lu B-L et al., editors. 2011. Neural Information Processing: 18th International Conference, ICONIP 2011, Shanghai, China, November 13-17, 2011, Proceedings, Part I. Berlin, Heidelberg: Springer.
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 Evolutionary Anthropology.

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. 2007 Jun. Social Security Numbers: Federal Actions Could Further Decrease Availability in Public Records, though Other Vulnerabilities Remain. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office.

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
1 Bell J. 2015. A phenomenological study of African American GS-13 to GS-15 managers within the federal government [Doctoral dissertation]. [Phoenix, AZ]: University of Phoenix.

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
1 Kelly D. 2002. Deconstruct This! New York Times. :78.

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by sequential numbers in superscript:

This sentence cites one reference 1.
This sentence cites two references 1,2.
This sentence cites four references 1–4.
