About the RSC Referencing Style
The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Reference Style uses a system of superscript numbers in text when you are citing a work, and a reference list at the end of your document. Use the same superscripted number for subsequent citations of the same work.
Numerical citations - Numerical references are given within the text as superscripted number.
If you cite the same source more than once, use the same citation number for all citations.
In-text numbers are matched to an entry in the Reference List
- Comes at the end of your document;
- Lists all the sources you have cited;
- Lists publications in the order they are given in your text (not alphabetically), giving a numerical reference followed by the full reference for the publication you are citing;
- Contains full details of the sources you have cited.
