Writing Resources & Citation Styles
In scientific writing to achieve clarity of communication, publishers have developed rules of style to ensure clear and consistent presentation of written material - manuscript structure, word choice, punctuation, graphics, and references.
These rules are designed to facilitate the uniform use of elements in the manuscript as well as in publication to move forward the idea with a minimum of distraction and a maximum of precision.
When editors or teachers put the specification to write in any particular style, it is the editorial style that the publishers have adopted to present the written material in that field.
Editorial Style usually refers to punctuation and abbreviations, construction of tables, selection of headings citation of references, and presentation of statistics.
The following styles are popular and primarily available on subscription, but they also contain free resources, examples, blogs and tutorials. The links are given to explore such resources.

ORCID provides an identifier for individuals to use with their name as they engage in research, scholarship, and innovation activities.
ORCID provides a digital name – or ID – that uniquely and persistently identifies researchers and contributors across different research activities, affiliations and multiple research information platforms.
ResearcherID (Thomson Reuters)
To manage and share the professional information, simultaneously adding dynamic citation metrics and collaboration networks to the researchers personal profile.
Within the scholarly research community, each member is assigned a unique identifier to enable researchers to manage their publication lists, track their times cited counts and h-index, identify potential collaborators and avoid author misidentification.
Showcase researchers publications from a single one account.
In addition, ResearcherID information integrates with the Web of Science and is ORCID compliant.
Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world!
