Citation Manager style files: Authors are highly encouraged to use the citation manager programs for citing and formatting the references. Authors may use Mendelay, Zotero, Paper 2 or Endnote program. If you are using any of these citation manager program for Bibliography (References and Notes), then you can download citation style file for journal (common for all ScienceIn journals):

Mendelay, Zotero, Paper 2 style file: ScienceIn Journals CSL style file

Authors can directly add the styles to Zotero and Mendeley, follow the below steps:
Zotero: Open Zotero desktop > Edit (top menu)> Preferences > Cite (menu in new opened small window) > Get additional styles.. (click this link below the list of styles) > in new opened window – search the term ‘Integrated Science’ in search box and then click on ‘Integrated Science Publishing Journals’ link > style file will download > Open the file with Zotero desktop and use (this style is common for all ScienceIn Journals).
Mendeley: Open Mendeley desktop > View (top menu) > Citation Styles > More styles.. > go to tab ‘Get more styles’ (in new opened window) > search for the term ‘Integrated Science’ in search box and then click on ‘install’ adjacent to ‘Integrated Science Publishing Journals’ list > style file will be installed > then click on ‘Use this style’ from the installed styles tab and use (this style is common for all ScienceIn Journals).

Endnote style file: ScienceIn Journals Endnote style file

(click and download the endnote style file from google drive … and either copy the file to Endnote style folder (go to C:>Program files>Endnote > Style folder > paste the file in this folder (it will listed in style when you open the Endnote program) or you can directly Open the downloaded style file in EndNote program and use).

Also the user can check the respective program user guide (online link on Zotero, Mendeley or Endnote) regarding information on how to use the style file.
