How to Cite Articles

Citing Articles Published after the Title Change to Science Signaling in January 2008

Science Signaling Literature, Podcasts, Presentations, and Teaching Resources

Volume 1, issue 1 of Science Signaling was published 08 January 2008. Because Science Signaling is an electronic-only journal, each article's citation only has a single page, which includes letters and numbers. Research Articles, Perspectives, Reviews, Protocols, Teaching Resources, Letters, Meeting Reports, Presentations, Journal Club articles, and Connections Map Overviews are submitted to Medline for indexing in PubMed. Although not submitted to Medline for indexing, Editorial Guides and Editors' Choice summaries are also citable. Each of these articles and resources may also be automatically downloaded to common citation manager software using the "Download Citation" link. Examples of how to cite article-based resources are provided for a Research Article, Perspective, and Editors' Choice summary. Protocols, Reviews, Teaching Resources, Connections Maps Overviews, Editorial Guides, Journal Club articles, Meeting Reports, Presentations, Podcasts, and Letters follow the same format.

Science Signaling Database of Cell Signaling

Connections Maps Pathways

Connections Maps and data in the Database of Cell Signaling are fully citable. To cite a pathway or data that was viewed after January 2008, use Science Signaling as the name of the site and include the month and year that you viewed the pathway in the citation to indicate the dynamic nature of the resource. The citation for pathways and data in the database appears on the "Print Version" page representing that entity in the database. Connections Maps that have an associated Connections Map Overview article may be cited using the article citation. The Connections Maps Overview articles are submitted to Medline for indexing in PubMed and the citations for these articles may be automatically downloaded using the "Download Citation" link.

Science Signaling E-Letters and Forums

E-Letters

E-Letters are comments by the community of users about a particular article or resource and are associated with that article or resource. These are not the same as published Letters that appear in the Literature section of the site. E-Letters appear in the Community section of the site and are not submitted to Medline for indexing in PubMed. E-letters submitted after January 2008 should be cited using the following style:

Author of the letter, Title of the Letter. Sci. Signal. (E-Letter, date of letter) URL.

Forums

A complete Forum or an individual message in a Forum may be cited. If the entire Forum is cited, include the date that the Forum was viewed. If an individual message is cited, include the date that the message was posted. Forum messages are not submitted to Medline for indexing in PubMed.

Citation Style for an Entire Forum

E-Conference: Defining Calcium Entry Signals. Sci. Signal. (Forum, as seen Month Year) http://stke.sciencemag.org/cgi/forum-display/stkeforum;14.

Citation Style for an Individual Forum Message

Author of the message, Title of the Message. Sci. Signal. (Forum message, Day Month Year) URL.

Citing Articles Published Prior to January 2008 in the Title Science's STKE

Science's STKE Literature and Teaching Resources

From September 1999 to December 2007, articles were published in the title Science's STKE. Articles in the Perspectives, Reviews, Protocols, Teaching Resources, Letters, Journal Club, Editorial Guides, and Editors' Choice sections are fully citable and the citation may be automatically downloaded to common citation manager software using the "Download Citation" link. Connections Map Overviews and Teaching Resources are also citable using a journal article format as shown below.

Author(s), Title of Article. Sci. STKE Volume, page (Year).

"Sci. STKE" is the abbreviation of the "journal," and the volume and year are the same. Because each article is only published online, the first and last pages are the same. Because each issue of Science's STKE is not collated and sequentially paginated, each article's first page is the same as the article's last page.
