Styles start with Surname-Given name order: Initial without periods (SG2 format)

Authors are formatted in the same way like, Smith AG, Doe JC, Gates WA, ...

Year is enclosed in parentheses. But, bibliogrpahy is sorted by Author + Year.

SG2 format: Vancouver and variants

This is "Vancouver" style and variants. Many biomedical journals including BMC use this format. They are almost always "Appearance order" bibliography, except for the one used by Am J Physiology. Because I use of this format frequently, I post many variations.

 

Generally, Vancouver style looks like this:

Authors are formatted like, Smith AG, Doe JC, Gates WA, ...

Then, title journal year volume page follows.

Depending on the journal/publisher, each element is emphasized by bold and/or italic. Issue number is often included, but authors very often disregard issue number, and they are not shown in the actual references in articles.

More Vancouver variants. The last one is kind of unique. Title is italicized. This is from Scandinavian Journal of Immunology, by Blackwell.

Re: SG2 format: Vancouver and variants

More Vancouve variants. BMC uses Vancouver without issue number, but BMC Neuroscience has issue number. Practically, they are all the same because authors often dismiss issue number anyway.

AJP (American Journal of Physiology) use Vancouver-like style, but bibliogrpahy is sorted by Author+Title. All the subsidiary journals used this format.

Styles start with Surname-Given name order: Initial with periods (GS1 format)

Authors are formatted like A. G. Smith, J. Doe, W. A. Gates, ...

 

They are always "Appearance" ordered. I've never seen "Author" sorted bibliography with this style. The first three are title-less format used by Science.
