- This page also has a link to BibTex example
- In RefWorks, every ACM journal and conference proceeding us listed. Click "Create bibliography" (on top), and enter ACM in the box, then scroll down to the publication whose style you want to use:
The American Chemical Society (ACS) has online information about its style.
- How to cite articles, books, websites, and other things (as of 2020)
- Other style information, such as style for chemical elements, isotopes, electronic configurations, and crystallography
The latest edition is the 11th (2019) [online].
Some quick tips:
- Here is the information for reference formats
- "Each reference should be cited in the text, figures, tables, or boxes in consecutive numerical order by means of superscript arabic numerals." (in section 3.6)
- A DOI should be included if available (in the abstract)

The style known as "Vancouver" was created by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). It is used by many biomedical journals including Annals of Internal Medicine, British Medical Journal (BMJ), JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association), and New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
Here are the organization's guidelines for preparing a manuscript for submission.
In the References section of that page, there is a lot of guidance, including
- examples of how citations should look
- abbreviate journal titles according the style used for MEDLINE
- follow NLM's Citing Medicine, 2nd edition, which is free online on NCBI's "bookshelf" -- look at the Table of Contents for how to cite conference proceedings and other things
- Monash University also has a page about Vancouver style
Some journals use variations on Vancouver style. For style points that vary -- e.g., whether to cite electronic references within parentheses in the text or in numbered references following the text -- you should consult the specific journal to which you plan to submit your manuscript.
