Vancouver reference style (based on Citing Medicine): Tables/figures/images

A guide to using the Vancouver citation style for in text citations and reference lists.

Tables/figures/images

You must reference any tables, figures or images that you include in your work which have been obtained from another source. The reference should appear in your reference list and have a number assigned to it as for any other reference. Your reference will begin with the standard refererence to the source of the table/figure/image - e.g. if you obtained it from a website you need to reference that website - and information specifically pertaining to the image will come at the end of the reference. See examples below for more information.
