Journal of Applied Electrochemistry format

Could anybody kindly share an output format of Journal or Applied Electrochemistry? or is this journal in a larger general group that has the same format?



Have you looked up in the Output Style download site in Thomson Reuter’s support page?

If you have done that, and still can’t find the exact style for the journal, I suggest to use close one as a template.

Please paste the author instruction page, about the citation style. Or paste link to the journal’s instruction page.

unfortunately it’s not there. how do I pinpoint which style is the closest one?

List style
Reference list entries should be numbered consecutively and listed at the end of the article in the following fashion.

Always use the standard abbreviation of a journal’s name according to the ISSN List of Title Word Abbreviations, see

Go to this link, and find out style templates.

These are categorized based on the order of family/given names, and how other titles and journal names should appear in the Journal Article reference.

The instruction looks like you can use “SG2_Ap_(Yr)_Ti_Jo_Vol_Page -Plos” as a close template. You’d need to change the number of authors allowed to list: from 6 in the template to 3 for the journal.

looks very close, thanks.

On a related note, I tried to replace Pages with Start Page: Endnote just disregards it, any ideas?

 Author (Year) Journal| Volume|:Pages|.

Cheng XF, Leng WH, Liu DP, Zhang JQ, Cao CN (2007) Chemosphere 68:1976-1984.

Author (Year) Journal| Volume|:Start Page|.

Cheng XF, Leng WH, Liu DP, Zhang JQ, Cao CN (2007) Chemosphere 68.

You don’t want to change the template, you want to change the Pages settings as shown in the attached image.  Start Page is a different (usually empty) field in records. 

live and learn… that helped, thanks both of you

After tweaking a little bit more, and when you feel like sharing your style with others, please post the style with the journal’s name here.

Good luck.

Still confusing… Working on the books now

What I am getting is 

  1. Rodriguez JA, Fernandez-Garcia M, Editors (2007) Synthesis, Properties, and Applications of Oxide Nanomaterials. 717 pp p.

Which is clearly wrong from directions I posted previously as no pages and publisher is needed. Where do I change that? The only place I can think of is again in  Bibliography>Templates but I was proved to be wrong

this is my rendition.  I am surprised that they don’t give any pages for the book chapter though.  Your instincts this time were absolutely correct.  Templates is the place to make those modifications.  But it is tricky keeping the punctuation, pluralities (ed^eds) and other field specific stuff straight.
