7. References

Cite the main scientific publications on which your work is based. Cite only items that you have read. Do not inflate the manuscript with too many references. Avoid excessive self‐citations. Avoid excessive citations of publications from the same region. Check each reference against the original source (authors name, volume, issue, year, DOI Number). Please use Reference Manager Applications like EndNote, Mendeley, Zotero, etc. Use other published articles in the same journal as models.

All publications cited in the text should be included as a list of references. References are sequentially numbered as they appear in the text. Reference numbers are indicated in square brackets. Please ensure that every reference cited in the text is also present in the reference list (and vice versa). Any references cited in the abstract must be given in full. Unpublished results and personal communications are not recommended in the reference list, but may be mentioned in the text. If these references are included in the reference list they should follow the standard reference style of the journal and should include a substitution of the publication date with either “Unpublished results” or “Personal communication”. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication.

As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, a reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Web references can be listed separately (e.g., after the reference list) under a different heading if desired, or can be included in the reference list.

Please ensure that the words 'this issue' are added to any references in the list (and any citations in the text) to other articles in the same Special Issue.

        For a Proceedings Paper, see [5]
        For a Technical Report, see [6]
        For a Dissertation or Thesis, see [7]
        For an Internet Reference (not preferable), see [8]

When preparing your reference list, the following should be avoided:

    References not cited in the text.
    Excessively referencing your work.
    Insufficiently referencing the work of others.

It is also preferable when Authors give DOI number of each reference list in bracket [3], but it is optional for Authors. References list must be written consistently, whether the journal titles are written in short (i.e. Bull. Chem. React. Eng. Catal.) or in long format (Bulletin of Chemical Reaction Engineering & Catalysis). For short title of journals, please follow the standard here: abrvjt.html
