RSC Referencing Style

The Royal Society of Chemistry have a specific referencing style that they use across all their journals, as it ensures that all references are given accurately, clearly and with sufficient detail. It’s always worth checking with your department what referencing style they recommend though, and if they have specific guidelines they want you to follow.
