Citation styles vary widely by journal. Check the journal's website to see if they provide citation instructions under a section typically called "Guide for Authors" or "Author instructions." If you can't find this information on the website, use the references section of the journal article you want to model your references after as an example. Pay particular attention to the order they place the information in, whether or not they use italics or bold, how they abbreviate journal titles, and how they use punctuation.
In Rangeland Sciences you will typically use the citation style of the Society for Range Management's peer-reviewed journal Rangeland Ecology & Management. Below is a link to REM's Guide for Authors as well as a pdf of their citation guide.
