Style update request: Frontiers in Physiology

edited May 23, 2023
The abbreviated journal names are missing period. Plus the E number is something I don't see in their format. Can this be fixed?

Tadokoro, T., Ikeda, M., Ide, T., Deguchi, H., Ikeda, S., Okabe, K., et al. (2020). Mitochondria-dependent ferroptosis plays a pivotal role in doxorubicin cardiotoxicity. JCI Insight 5, e132747, 132747. doi: 10.1172/jci.insight.132747.

  • The e number is likely from your metadata -- what do you have in the pages field, what in Extra?

    Abbreviated journals are rendered with periods (check the Curr. Biol. article preview on ) but there's no period when the journal isn't abbreviated, as is the case for JCI Insight -- see e.g. the PLOS One citations in this recent article:
  • I am using the web library to create citations. And I have selected Frontiers in Physiology format. This is one of the examples that was generated. I see the periods are missing

    Ta, N., Qu, C., Wu, H., Zhang, D., Sun, T., Li, Y., et al. (2022). Mitochondrial outer membrane protein FUNDC2 promotes ferroptosis and contributes to doxorubicin-induced cardiomyopathy. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 119, e2117396119. doi: 10.1073/pnas.2117396119.

  • you'd have to mention that you're using the web library -- the expectation would be the Word add-on if you don't specify otherwise. The web library uses whatever is in the Journal Abbr. field (and removes periods where they're not required, but doesn't add them because that's error-prone)
