Instructions for publishing in the series Acta Universitatis Ouluensis: Bibliographic management programs

Bibliographic management programs

Bibliographic management 

The citation style for Acta series is APA (APA 6th - American Psychological Association, 6th Edition). If necessary you can use IEEE citation style in the C series. Also other citation styles can be used (B series) but agree on the matter with a series editor.

The Acta editors recommend that doctoral candidates use RefWorks or Mendeley for reference management, as for example use of Microsoft Word’s built-in bibliography builder causes technical and compatibility problems and unnecessary work.

Library gives advice in using RefWorks and Mendeley:  informationservice(at) 


RefWorks license is provided to University of Oulu students and staff. Create an account using your email address. More information: New RefWorks


Mendeley combines reference management and academic collaboration network. You can create a free account and download necessary applications on Mendeley web page.
