One Work by Three, Four or Five Authors

List all the last names the first time a reference to the work appears, placing a comma and a space after each name. Place an ampersand (&) beforethe last name in parenthetical material. When including the names inthe text, use the word and.


One method (Nelson, Miller, Lutz, & Fayer, 1982) optically excites and monitors coherentacoustic waves in transparent or light-absorbing liquids and solids.

Nelson, Miller, Lutz, and Fayer (1982) developed a method of optically exciting andmonitoring coherent acoustic waves in transparent or light-absorbing liquids and solids.

Pulse-length-induced extra resonances arise in transient-grating experiments when the laserpulses are short enough that a steady state cannot be achieved during the excitation process(Farces, Tribuna, Dugal, & Fayer, 1993).


In subsequent references, give only the first author's name followed by "et al." (Note: Do notunderline or italicize this Latin abbreviation for "and others.")


The method developed by Nelson et al. (1982) allows the selection of any propagationdirection in anisotropic materials.

In anisotropic materials any propagation direction can be selected (Nelson et al.,1982).

Farces et al. (1993) have demonstrated that extra resonances, such as those caused infrequency-domain nonlinear wave mixing by pure dephasing or laser fluctuations, can also be inducedby operation in the time domain.

Recent research (Farces et al., 1993) demonstrated that extra resonances, such as thosecaused in frequency-domain nonlinear wave mixing by pure dephasing or laser fluctuations, can alsobe induced by operation in the time domain.
