Preparing for Qualifying Exams in Biomedical Engineering: Vancouver Citation Style

A collection of resources to assist graduate students to find and synthesize information in Biomedical Engineering

The Vancouver Style is formally known as Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals (ICMJE Recommendations.)  It was developed in 1978 by editors of medical journals and well over 1000 medical journals have adopted this style. This is the style for individuals who will be publishing in the medical field to be familiar with.
