Vancouver Style Guide Typically used in Biomedical Sciences

Vancouver or ICMJE Style

The Vancouver guidelines were developed as a result of a meeting of medical journal editors in Vancouver, BC. They became known as the Vancouver Group, and have since expanded into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). Vancouver style is also known as the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals and is used by most biomedical journals and many scientific journals.
