Thank you so much, Real help, Samuel, Bangalore India
PS, I have downloaded all the files in your posts, if you have any other style please inform
All right, this concludes posting my collection of style templates (second time). I know doing this kind of thing is a little bit (very?) maniac, but I found it's now really easy to find good templates as long as I know how journal article ought to be formatted. Most of the cases, I don't need to tweak them at all. Thomson probably doesn't need 4000 styles for every possible journal. Sixty or so basic templates are enough to cover >90% of journals, particularly English-based journals (90% is my estimate).
Additionally, if links to these attachments are broken again, I'd ask somebody to keep them on their websites and make HTML links. I am willing to share as long as somebody find them useful. So, please let me know if your librarians/university are interested. Apparently, Thomson is not interested, and my university's library also doesn't show interest.
Best regards, and happy bibliography formatting!

I have to write a dissertation but my university doesn't tell me what style name I should follow. Luckily, they give me the examples below:
In the in-text citation, I must follow like this:
In 1939, Edmond, one of the greatest criminologists in France, suggested that lip prints play a very important role in forensic sciences , ..
In the REFERENCE list, I must follow like this:
3. Vahanwala S.P. and Parekh B.K. (2000); "Study on lip prints as an aid to forensic methodology", Journal of Indian Dental association, 71(1), pp. 268-271.
Do you happen to know such type of style name ? Please help me.

This style is close to Harvard, but details are little different from the one I have in this collection.
I quickly modified, SG1_(Yr)_Ti Quot_Jo Ital_Vol(No)_p Page which is based on Harvard so that punctuation etc matches with the one you need. I still need the info from you, if this is "appearance order" or "author+year" order in the in-text citation, but I assumed it is appearance order, because you need a number before the reference.
so check the attached, and let me know if this works for you.

Wierd that you talk about Edmond in 1939, but then quote an entirely different reference, but okay...
Other pieces of information are required.
I am assuming that you need these in order of appearance and and not in alphabetically listed (but numbered).
You also need to know how books and edited books are referenced. Then you can peruse the rest of the examples in this thread, pick the closest (IEEE looks close but not perfect). It is pertty unusual, with pp for Journal pages... Also, your example has the journal name in full, so you may need to ensure that you import a Journal terms list that will convert any abbreviated journal names in your library to full journal names. Instructions for that can be found here: http://www.library.uq.edu.au/endnote/journal_terms
Once you have something close, you can post the style here, and others can help you tweek it, if you provide the requirements in more detail.
