Help:References/More examples

This is a simplified CAZypedia page to demonstrate how in-text citations work. To see the wiki code used to make each of the citations/bibliographic references, click the "View source" tab at the top of the page. You may copy & paste parts of this code into your own page to assist you with reference formatting.


This is an example of how to insert references to a journal article (e.g. [1]) using the PubMed ID number.

Multiple references can go in the same place like this [1, 2].

You can even cite books using just the ISBN [3].

References that are not in PubMed or the ISBNdb can be typed in manually [4] (note that the DOI link must also be added by hand in this case).

This is an even more complicated example, where a comment field is used to add the chapter information for a book chapter [5].

Internet URLs can sometimes also be effectively placed in the Reference list [6, 7].

There is essentially no limit to the number of references that can be cited in one place in the text [1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7].

Note that the references are automatically numbered based on the first appearance in the text, not the order they are listed in the "biblio" section [8].

Non-working example

Although it appears that comment fields can themselves include other references [9], the numbering of these addition references in the comment field appears to be incorrect.
