References are numbered and listed in the sequence they are first cited. sequence Subsequent citations of the same Subsequent document use the same number as the initial citation. initial Citation-Sequence System Citation-Sequence Advantages Citations interrupt only minimally the reading Citations of text (as compared to name system, where a long list of names may interrupt the flow of text on a regular basis) text Using numbers instead of names saves Using space, paper and cost space, Citation-Sequence System Citation-Sequence Disadvantages Readers have to turn to the list to find out Readers whose work is being cited whose When authors have to add or delete a When reference at a late stage, they will have to reorder and renumber reference lists (though Refman may solve that problem) Refman Visibility of author names is lower when they Visibility appear only in references and not citations appear Name-Year System Name-Year Here, citations in text, tables and figure Here, legends of the references listed at the end of the document (article, chapter, book) consist of surname of the author, by which the reference is alphabetized in the list, and the year of publication of the document.
