ERS311H5: Sedimentology and Basin Analysis

Sedimentology Citation Style

Sample Citations

Authors should use the system illustrated below. Only full articles that have been published or are 'in press' may be included in the reference list. In the text, references should be cited by giving the author's name with the year of publication in parentheses, and should be given in date order (e.g. Jones, 1982; Adams, 1985). When reference is made to a work by three or more authors, the first name followed by et al. should be used in the text on all occasions. If several papers by the same author and from the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication.

References should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the paper in the following standard form. Please note that authors names should be shown in bold:

In the references, papers with two authors should follow those of the first named author, arranged in alphabetical order according to the name of the second author. Papers with three or more authors should be ordered following the name of the first author in chronological order. The titles of Journals should be abbreviated as directed in Journal Abbreviations.
