Formatting references in an article: The guide for authors
When you publish an article in a journal, you will obviously include references. Since every journal has its own specific presentation styles, it may be difficult to figure out how you should proceed. To know which bibliography style to choose, consult the section dedicated to authors on the journal’s website. Look for the section with the title, "Guide for Authors", "Submission Guidelines", "Resources for Authors" or "Author Guidelines", for example. You should be able to find the information you need on how to format your references and present tables and figures.
Managing Your References
Bibliographic software allows you to import and manage personal databases of bibliographic references.
