Biomedical Research and Therapy uses new output style for references

From Issue 4, Vol 5 (2018), BMRAT uses the reference style of VANCOUVER style. You should use reference manager software such as Endnote during the manuscript preparation.  And then format reference with Vancouver style. 

Vancouver is a numbered referencing style commonly used in medicine and science, and consists of:

  • citations to someone else's work in the text, indicated by the use of a number
  • a sequentially numbered reference list at the end of the document providing full details of the corresponding in-text reference

It follows rules established by the International committee of Medical Journal Editors, now maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It is also known as Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts submitted to Biomedical Journals.
