  • You can change the surrounding brackets for in-text citations by changing the contents of the openbracket and closebracket elements.
  • You can change the look of the numbers in the first column of the bibliography by changing the format element of the first column (column id="1"). Note that you have to do this for each type separately. Some examples are:
  <!-- Number between square brackets (current implementation). Example: [1] -->
  <!-- Number between round brackets. Example: (1) -->
  <!-- Number followed by a period. Example: 1. -->
