Vancouver referencing is a numeric citation style commonly used in the publications related to the field of physical sciences or medicine studies.
Key things to remember
In Vancouver referencing, a number is assigned to each source as and when it is used. The original number that is assigned to the reference is used whenever that source is cited in the text.
'Recent research (2, 4-6, 10) shows that fast food prices are rising.'
References are also listed in sequential order in a bibliography at the end of the paper.
The reference list should be indented from the second line onward.
Have a look at the referencing format for various sources listed below:
Citations for books with one author:
When you are citing a book with a single author, use the format mentioned below:
(Number) Last name, first initial. Title. Edition (if not the first edition of the book). City of publication: Publisher; Year.
Davis, B. A History of Chocolate. Nottingham: Delectable Publications; 2013.
Davis, B. A History of Chocolate. 3rd ed. Nottingham: Delectable Publications; 2013.
Citations for books with two or more authors:
If you are citing a book having two or more authors, then for an in-text reference mention only the first author's name followed by 'et al.' However, for a reference list, all authors should be listed in the order in which they are credited in the original work.
(Number) Last name, first initial and Last name, first initial. Title. Edition (if not the first edition of the book). City of publication: Publisher; Year.

Citations for a chapter in an edited book:
If you are citing a single chapter in a book, it is important to ensure that you add the page range (p.) that the chapter spans. If you have to cite a chapter, you should also always include the edition of the book in the citation.
(Number) Last name, first initial. Chapter title. In: Editor's name/s (ed/s) Book Title. Edition. City of publication: Publisher; Year. Page/s.
