Past Practice Current Practice Use of et al. in text Three authors or more Four authors or more Use of et al. in reference list No standard practice Seven authors or more. List first six et al. Institutional authors Often abbreviated form Name to be written in full Databases (e.g. Faostat) Cited by database name Use responsible institutions (e.g. Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) Photographs Only a credit including the copyright holder and the photographers name

In addition to the credit, mention the photographs in the text and number them among the figures, unless they are purely decorative. Also Important Titles of journals to be given in full 4d. Order of entries in the reference list Entries arranged by alphabetical order. Several sources, same author or co-authors: ascending chronological order. Same author, same year: alphabetical order by the letter assigned after year. Single author listed before multi-author source beginning with same author. Several sources with same first author and different co-author: alphabetical order by surname of first author then surname of the other authors. 5. Reference Management Tools The compilation and management of references can be enhanced by

the use of a reference management tool that can help: Build and organize libraries from various databases Attach full-text to selected references Insert citations in Word directly from the Endnote Library and have the text instantly formatted according to the selected citation style. UN Environment has purchased a multi-user Endnote X8 License. Each author group to have a passkey to an Endnote desktop account. Other members to share through their Endnote online account. Members of the UN Environment Secretariat to be assigned to each group. The owner of the passkey to consolidate the text before submitting to UN Environment Secretariat. 6. Submitting Drafts Compliance with referencing and style guide. Each in-text citation has a corresponding entry in the reference list and vice versa. All required permissions have been secured and a copy of evidence submitted as an annex to the manuscript.

7. Support from UN Environment Secretariat Topical on-demand literature search. Research for Life registration of eligible institutions in eligible countries. Plagiarism checking. Purchase of iThenticate by UN Secretariat. Training being arranged, hopefully on time for use in the GEO project. Citations quality control. Thank you! Comments and suggestions to: [email protected]
