How to format your references using the Yeast citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Yeast. 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
Figer DF. 2005. An upper limit to the masses of stars. Nature, 434: 192–194.
A journal article with 2 authors
Grabbe C, Dikic I. 2008. Cell biology. Going global on ubiquitin. Science, 322: 872–873.
A journal article with 3 authors
Van Roy P, Daley AC, Briggs DEG. 2015. Anomalocaridid trunk limb homology revealed by a giant filter-feeder with paired flaps. Nature, 522: 77–80.
A journal article with 10 or more authors
Xu W, Liu Y, Wang S, McDonald T, Van Eyk JE, Sidor A, O’Rourke B. 2002. Cytoprotective role of Ca2+- activated K+ channels in the cardiac inner mitochondrial membrane. Science, 298: 1029–1033.

Books and book chapters

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

An authored book
Gordon J. 2009. Training Camp. John Wiley & Sons, Inc.: Hoboken, NJ.
An edited book
Barsegian GA, Begehr HGW. (eds). 2005. Topics in Analysis and its Applications. Springer Netherlands: Dordrecht.
A chapter in an edited book
Mané AM, Levin E. 2008. Designing the Voice User Interface for Automated Directory Assistance. In Human Factors and Voice Interactive Systems, Blanchard HE. (ed). Springer US: Boston, MA; 117–134.

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 Yeast.

Blog post
Luntz S. 2015. Lava Explosion Triggered By Collapse Of Hawaiian Volcano Wall. IFLScience. https://www.iflscience.com/environment/volcanic-wall-collapses/ (Accessed October 30, 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. 2009. Proprietary Schools: Improved Department of Education Oversight Needed to Help Ensure Only Eligible Students Receive Federal Student Aid. 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
Bardhoshi G. 2012. The Relationship Between Assignment of Non-Counseling Duties and Burnout Among Professional School Counselors. Doctoral dissertation, George Washington University: Washington, DC.

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
Saslow L. 2006. Study to Help Coordinate Transportation Solutions. New York Times, December 10.

References should be cited in the text
