Citation Style

References

Citation

Cite references in the text by Roman numbers like [1], [2-4] and/or [6-7, 9-11]. Example: as mentioned in an earlier sentence [1] you have to include the reference. If for a particular point or information you need to quote two-three references then you can use in this way [2-4]. Further, to quote the references that are not in sequence then you can use the way [2-4, 6-8].
