Introducing a New Citation Format with Mendeley Support in JMBFS Journal
In the ever-evolving landscape of academic publishing, it is essential for journals to adapt to the changing needs of researchers and provide them with convenient tools to enhance their writing and citation processes. In line with this objective, we are pleased to announce the implementation of a new feature in the Journal of Microbiology, Biotechnology and Food Sciences (JMBFS) that offers authors a seamless integration with Mendeley, a widely used reference management software.
Mendeley has gained popularity among researchers for its user-friendly interface and efficient citation management capabilities. Recognizing its value and the growing number of authors utilizing this tool, we decided to incorporate a customized citation template into the Mendeley platform specifically tailored to JMBFS guidelines. This integration aims to simplify the citation process for authors, enabling them to generate accurate and consistent references while writing their articles.
The New Citation Format:
Our team has developed a dedicated citation template that aligns with the JMBFS journal requirements. This template encompasses various citation styles commonly used in scientific publications, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of research disciplines. By installing this template in their Mendeley software, authors can effortlessly insert properly formatted citations and bibliographies directly into their manuscripts.
