  • References

There must be at least 8 references from peer reviewed journals with an impact factor of >1.0. A list of dentistry category journals by impact factor is posted at the end of these instructions. This is not a comprehensive list. Students may use references from journals not on the list. References must be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Each source should have one number, so be careful not to repeat sources in the reference list. References must be identified by Arabic numerals and placed in the text as superscript numerals within or at the end of the sentence.

Do not enclose the numerals in parentheses and be sure to follow American rather than British or European style conventions (e.g., the reference number follows rather than precedes commas and periods).

References should not be linked to their numbers as footnotes or endnotes and references to tables and figures should appear as a source note with the table/figure, not numbered consecutively with the references for the article.

Do not use italics or boldface anywhere in the references.

If the publication has one to four authors, list all of them; if there are more than four authors, list the first three followed by et al.
