How to format the bibliography page in Vancouver Style?

Create a spot-on reference in Vancouver

Select a source type:

A distinctive trait of Vancouver Style in terms of the organisation of a list of references in the use of the author-sequence (author-number) system assuming that references in a bibliography should appear in the chronological order of citations in the text of the work.

The list of references should be numbered.

Example of a list of references in Vancouver Style:

5. <…>

The in-text citations can be represented schematically as follows (for more information, see the article on in-text citations in Vancouver Style):

As for the formatting of the bibliography page (margins, indents, intervals, fonts, etc.), the manual of Vancouver Style provides no specific recommendations. Therefore, in such cases, consult the recommendations of your university, journal, etc.
