Almost all papers contain a reference list giving details of
previous work cited in the manuscript. The purpose of the reference list is to
enable others to find works on which the published paper is based.
A citation should be included when what you are writing
refers to or is based on previous work. Examples can also be cited. The
citation list should contain only references to static content, i.e., something
that is not expected to change over time. This includes journal and newspaper
articles, patents, and details of specific equipment. Content that does not
fulfil these criteria may be listed directly in the main text and might include
company websites, or websites to track project development (such as GitHub).
The reference section is highly structured and different
types of references are formatted in a specific way. Full details are available
from the instructions for authors’ page of the journal you are submitting to,
however below are examples of the most common types.
ISRDO uses three reference styles, APA, MLA and Chicago. Templates are available
for most common referencing software.
Most preferable : Chicago
