Citing medicine: the NLM style guide for authors, editors, and publishers provides instructions and examples for formatting bibliographic citations for different types of published and unpublished materials. These materials range from traditional journal articles and books to electronic formats such as online journals, Web pages, and blog posts. Citing Medicine does not provide in-text citation styles.

If you have the DOI name (e.g., 10.1000/xyz123) of an article, type or paste it into the text box and click Go. Your browser will take you to a Web page (URL) associated with that DOI name.

Intended to support researchers and librarians, this tool can be used to quickly identify or confirm journal titles and abbreviations for publications indexed by CAS since 1907, including serial and non-serial scientific and technical publications. Search by Title, Abbreviation, CODEN, ISBN, or ISSN.

Advantages of using a citation management tool

With a citation management system, you will be able to:

  • export references from databases
  • organize references
  • store articles
  • add personal notes about the references
  • share folders
  • format citations and reference lists in hundreds of citation styles
  • insert properly formatted in-text citations (or footnotes) and reference lists (or bibliographies or works cited lists) in your documents.

RefWorks is the software licensed by the Library, but there are other options, such as Zotero, Mendeley and EndNote. Visit the Citation Management Tools guide for more information.
