Vancouver citation style. Alphabetical order?

Thomas Lenschen Apr 23, 2013 10:30AM BST

Hello!

My university forces me to use the Vancouver style for citation. The Journal articles are sorted alphabetically at the end of my thesis using word plugin. That ok for me. If I cite more than one article at the same time in the running text, they are sorted from oldest to newest citation. Is there a way to change it to alphabetical order too.
Thanks!

Not this way: (NameB et al. 1998, NameC et al. 2002, NameA 2012)
but this way: (NameA 2012, NameB et al. 1998, NameC et al. 2002)

This can be done in one of two ways:

1) You can search through our already existing citation styles by example here: http://csl.mendeley.com/searchByExample/

2) If you cannot find the exact citation style you require, these changes can be done through the Visual CSL Editor which is included with Mendeley Desktop 1.7 and higher, where you can take an already existing citation style and change it as you see fit.

Thanks Josh!

Editing worked. Saving the edited file produced an error "insufficient permissions", but I handled it and manually saved it to a new file.
