Styling in reference lists

Q: What is the endnote alternative the editing office at Nature uses? I heard about it on a blog but I can’t seem to remember its name.

A: Nature does not use Endnote, which is a commercially available Word macro for styling reference lists for a range of journals and publishers. Nature and its typesetter use eXtyles (produced by a company called Inera) and their own technical system for reference styling which is not compatible with Endnote’s. If an author wants to use Endnote for reference styling when preparing a manuscript, we ask him or her to strip out the Endnote macros after the references are styled and before submitting the manuscript. Instructions are on the Nature submission template.
