Ordinal Summary Citation Guidelines
We will cite references in the style of the journal Nature. Nature uses superscripts as in-text citations, which allows more room for helpful information in your Ordinal Summaries!
- Use superscripts for in-text citations. Numbers go in order, starting at 1.
- The order is nested within the superorder Galloanserae4.
- References are each numbered and ordered in the order that they appear in the text.

Notice that the journal name is in Italics, and the volume number is in bold. The date, in parentheses, comes last.
