Style templates collection

(This is re-posting previous thread, which has been disabled unfortunately due to broken link to attachments.)

Hello Endnote community,

I recently sorted some output styles based on the format for Journal Articles, and renamed them such that I can find similar style template fast. In the following messages, I will attach these style files to share with you. They are all originally from Endnote website, or came with Endnote.

The followings are file naming rules I came up with.

  1. File names start with either SG, GS, or SGGS, which indicates how author is formatted.

SG1: Surname-Given name order, Initial with periods, like Smith A.

SG2: Surname-Given name order, Initial without periods, like Smith A 

GS1: Given name-Surname order, Initial with periods, like A. Smith

GS2: Given name-Surname order, Initial without periods, like A Smith

SGGS: SG for the first author, GS for the following authors, like Smith A, J Doe, W Gates, S Jobs, …

  1. If Ap follows after SG/GS, that means the bibliography sort order is Appearance order. Otherwise, sort order is Author+Year.

  2. Title, Journal, Volume, Number/Issue are abbreviated as follows.

  Title: Ti

  Year: Yr

  Journal: Jo

  Volume: Vol

  Number/Issue: No

  1. Bold, Italic, colon, or parenthesis are also indicated in the file name, but separators like period, comma, and colon are disregarded. This is because these separators do not fit well in Windows file system, and also because they can be switched/added very easily.

  2. Major journals or organizations that employ the format will be indicated at the end, such as:

  SG1 Ap_Ti_Jo Ital_Vol Bold_Page_(Yr) -Nature

  SG1_(Yr)_Ti_Jo Ital_Vol(No)_Page -APA 5th

  1. Journal abbreviation option has all been changed to “Don’t replace”. This is due to a personal reason because my library has both full name (ex. Journal of Chemistry) and abbreviated name (ex. J Chem) in “Full Journal” filed. Using abbreviation option makes very inconsistent output (for my library).

I hope this thread helps some people looking for styles that are not immediately available in Endnote website, but willing to modify from close templates.

Best regards,

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

This style represents a very pupular format, including APA 5th and Harvard style.

Bibliography of these formats are sorted by “Author+Year”. 

Once again, Journal abbreviation has been changed to “Don’t replace”. I suggest to check journal abbreviation format carefully, and make necessary changes.

Authors are formatted in the same way, like Smith A., Doe, J., Gates, W.,…

However, bibliography is sorted by “Appearance”, as indicated by “Ap” in the file name.

This style includes the one used to be for PNAS. Some journals still follow this styles, but less popular.

However, Year is not enclosed in parentheses in these styles. This is also a very pupular format, and many similar formats are available. Bibliography is usually sorted by “Author+Year”.

The last category of SG1 formats includes the formated used by Nature and subsidiary journals, and ACS (American Chemistry Soc.). These formats are all “Appearance” sorted bibliography.

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 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.
