RJ-MDKG follows alphabetic citation. In the parent paper citation should be inserted within the bracket by stating the Last name of the author & year of publication (For example Das 2015). In case of two authors it should be like Das & Borah 2013. For more than two authors write the last name of the first author and at al with year of publication (For example Gogoi & et al 2007). This is followed to avoid a long list of bibliography and also for correct citation.

The journal follows its own referencing style which is a synthesized form of different styles.

Moreover this style sheet may change in due course of time therefore it is advised either to consult with the latest issue of the journal or write to editor-in-chief before preparing it.
