I was recently preparing a paper for an ACS journal and had a few issues with the bibliography style. Most of these were fixed by downloading the latest achemso.bst style file from here. However, it didn’t include that the journal seems to use only first pages (not ranges) when making references. That is, an article on pages 1897–1902 is referred to as:
Authors, Journal, Year, Volume, 1897
Authors, Journal, Year, Volume, 1897–1902.
So, using some information from here I have made a modified achemso.bst [link fixed 24/7/18] that uses only the first page. I don’t know about you but it always takes lot googling to figure out this stuff, so I’ve tried to make this post easily findable by those in a similar situation.
Next week is the annual ACS Colloid and Surface Science Symposium — last year’s was very good and this one looks like it will be too. Hopefully there is as much good ramen in Pittsburgh as there was in Philadelphia. I’ll be giving two talks, both on the Tuesday. The first concerns methods for predicting and characterising the influence of polydispersity on a phase-separating fluid (with Mike Evans):
The second is about some more recent work on lipid bilayers, specifically how domain formation couples to asymmetry between the leaflets (with Peter Olmsted):
A few of us from Georgetown’s Institute for Soft Matter will be there, and I’m also looking forward to catching up with Ian Williams (he of the amazing colloidal corral). See you there!
