This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Thrombosis and Haemostasis. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

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.
