DOI

The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) may be used to cite and link to electronic documents. The DOI consists of a unique alpha-numeric character string which is assigned to a document by the publisher upon the initial electronic publication. The assigned DOI never changes. Therefore, it is an ideal medium for citing a document, particularly 'Articles in press' because they have not yet received their full bibliographic information. Example of a correctly given DOI (in URL format; here an article in the journal Physics Letters B):
http://dx.doi.org/10.5455/ijsm.189572
When you use a DOI to create links to documents on the web, the DOIs are guaranteed never to change.

As a service to the community, this journal makes available online the accepted manuscripts as soon as possible after acceptance. At this stage, the author's accepted manuscript (in both full-text and PDF) is given a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and is fully citable, and searchable by title, author(s) name and the full-text. The article also carries a disclaimer noting that it is an unedited manuscript which has not yet been copyedited, typeset or proofread. When the fully copyedited version is ready for publication, it simply replaces the author accepted manuscript version.

TYPES OF REFERENCE

Please cite references with Arabic numbers in squared parentheses and list them by the order in which they appear in the text (not in alphabetical order). References should be numbered consecutively in order of their appearance in the text and listed in numerical order. For references to journal articles, include the first 6 authors, followed by "et al" if there are more than 6 authors. The author names are followed by the title (with only the first word capitalized), the abbreviated name of the journal, the year, volume number (without issue number), and page range. Cite the references in the text by the appropriate number e.g. [1], [2, 3], [4-6], [7, 8-10] and the numbers should be within square brackets. Avoid using abstracts as references. Nothing should be italicized. Journal titles should be abbreviated according to the Index Medicus.

For chapters of books that have an editor(s) and individually authored chapters, include the names of the chapter authors, followed by the chapter title, the book editors, the book title, the city of publication, publisher name, year of publication, and chapter page range.

The list of references should only include works that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication ("in press"). Personal communications or unpublished data cannot be included in the reference list, but they should be mentioned in the text in parentheses including a date. Permission must be submitted when citing a personal communication. A paper published online but not (yet) in print can be cited using the Digital Object Identifier (DOI).

References with correct punctuation should be styled as follows:
