JBC Style Examples

Below is just a sample of some of the items that you might probably need for your reference list. These examples are formatted based on JBC's Author Information web page and reference lists of articles recently published in JBC. Be aware that your in-line citations need to be numbered and the references list will be in the order in which your in-line citations appear in the body of your paper. It is highly unlikely that your list of references will be in alphabetical order based on the first author's last name.

*Note that the JBC Author Information does not include reference styles for book chapters, newspapers, magazines, conference posters, web pages, and others. Use one of the other style guides for referencing those items.
