What is ICONTEC?

ICONTEC Style is a citation style widely used in Colombia. It is developed by the Colombian Institute of Technical Standards and Certification (Instituto Colombiano de Normas Técnicas y Certificación) and comprises the standards NTC 5613, NTC 4490, and NTC 1486.

What are the specifics of ICONTEC as a citation style?

The style developed by ICONTEC combines several individual standards. It has specific requirements to the presentation of various source types, uses a custom date format, applies specific linking phrases and underlined fonts in a number of cases, and so on. These traits make the style stand out among the other citation styles but at the same time make it difficult to master.
