Here is information about submitting manuscripts in Word and LaTeX.
- Here is the information for reference formats
- "References should be numbered consecutively with arabic numerals in the order in which they are cited in the text."

"In reference citations, a DOI is preferable to a URL if one is available... No accessed date is required for the DOI because it is a permanent identifier; it is presented as the last item in the reference."

The Council of Science Editors has its own writing and publication style.
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).
- 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" (this includes how to cite legal documents 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.
