Automatic numbering/tracking of references?


I am preparing an academic paper on google doc. I am wondering does this add-on has reference automatic tracking and numbering. By automatic tracking and numbering, I mean Mendeley’s feature of numbering the reference according to the order it shows in the manuscript. I would appreciate it if you would kindly comment on the above.


Yes, sure. You just have to select a citation style that uses numbers e.g. Vancouver and it will do exactly what you want.

For details how to use the add-on have a look here:


Thank you so much for your help! What other styles come with number? I am working on a paper in the field of Medicine.


e.g. PLOS.
