Style Error: American Society for Microbiology


The citation style for American Society for Microbiology is not correct for the types "Thesis" and "Software". For the type "Thesis" the delimiter between "Type" and "University" should be ".", but the style retrieves ",". For the type "Software", the Prog. Language should not appear in the reference, while the URL and retrieval date should be included.

Here are the examples/templates provided on the ASM references recommendations (

O’Malley DR. 1998. PhD thesis. University of California, Los Angeles, CA. {Title is optional.}

Author. Year. Description or title of software (version). Repository URL. Retrieved day month year. {Software or code.}

Can someone help me to make the necessary changes to the style?

Thank you in advance.
