Online references will be linked to their original source via CrossRef only if they are correctly presented. If there are errors, the references will not be correctly indexed.
To do so, extra care should be taken when preparing reference lists. References should be cited in the text by placing sequential numbers in brackets (for example, , [2, 5, 7], [8-10]). They should be numbered in the order in which they are cited.
