How to format your references using the Yearbook of English Studies citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Yearbook of English Studies. 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
Craik, David J., ‘Chemistry. Seamless Proteins Tie up Their Loose Ends’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 311.5767 (2006), 1563–64
A journal article with 2 authors
Huey, Raymond B., and William J. Moody, ‘Neuroscience and Evolution. Snake Sodium Channels Resist TTX Arrest’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 297.5585 (2002), 1289–90
A journal article with 3 authors
Harbaugh, William T., Ulrich Mayr, and Daniel R. Burghart, ‘Neural Responses to Taxation and Voluntary Giving Reveal Motives for Charitable Donations’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 316.5831 (2007), 1622–25
A journal article with 7 or more authors
Morris, Richard V., Steven W. Ruff, Ralf Gellert, Douglas W. Ming, Raymond E. Arvidson, Benton C. Clark, and others, ‘Identification of Carbonate-Rich Outcrops on Mars by the Spirit Rover’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 329.5990 (2010), 421–24

Books and book chapters

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

An authored book
Wei, James, Great Inventions That Changed the World (Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2012)
An edited book
Kenyon, George N., The Perception of Quality: Mapping Product and Service Quality to Consumer Perceptions, ed. by Kabir C. Sen (London: Springer, 2015)
A chapter in an edited book
Duggan, Dominic, and Ye Wu, ‘Security Correctness for Secure Nested Transactions’, in Trustworthy Global Computing: 8th International Symposium, TGC 2013, Buenos Aires, Argentina, August 30-31, 2013, Revised Selected Papers, ed. by Martín Abadi and Alberto Lluch Lafuente, Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Cham: Springer International Publishing, 2014), pp. 64–79

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 Yearbook of English Studies.

Blog post
Fang, Janet, ‘Why Some People Really Don’t Need to Ask for Directions’, IFLScience (IFLScience, 2014) <https://www.iflscience.com/brain/why-some-people-really-dont-need-ask-directions/> [accessed 30 October 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, Telecommunications: Broadband Deployment Is Extensive throughout the United States, but It Is Difficult to Assess the Extent of Deployment Gaps in Rural Areas (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 5 May 2006)

Theses and dissertations

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

Doctoral dissertation
Haile, Melon D., ‘A Mental Health Community Outreach and Education Program for Eritrean Immigrants: A Grant Proposal’ (unpublished Doctoral dissertation, California State University, Long Beach, 2012)

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
Haigney, Sophie, and Michael Cooper, ‘Who’s Calling? It May Be The Opera’, New York Times, 5 September 2017, p. C1

In-text citations

This sentence cites two references David J. Craik, ‘Chemistry. Seamless Proteins Tie up Their Loose Ends’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 311.5767 (2006), 1563–64; Raymond B. Huey and William J. Moody, ‘Neuroscience and Evolution. Snake Sodium Channels Resist TTX Arrest’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 297.5585 (2002), 1289–90..
