Journal Articles

There are two major variations: one that omits the title of the article, and one that includes it. Either is acceptable, but be consistent. The EndNote ACS style defaults to including the title.

  • Schöne, B. R.; Zhang, Z.; Jacob, D.; Gillikin, D. P.; Tütken, T.; Garbe-Schönberg, D.; McConnaughey, T.; Soldati, A. Geochem. J. 2010, 44, 23–37.
  • Çolak, A. T.; Çolak, F.; Yeşilel, O. Z.; Büyükgüngör, O. Synthesis, spectroscopic, thermal, voltammetric studies and biological activity of crystalline complexes of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid and 8-hydroxyquinoline. J. Mol. Struct. 2009, 936, 67–74.

Journal Title Abbreviations

Note that ACS style uses abbreviations of the journal titles.

EndNote can generate these automatically.

Electronic Journals

If the journal only publishes electronically, or the online version is different from the print version, then it may be appropriate to include information about the online access. This should include the date you accessed it, and one of: the DOI, the article URL or the database.
