I'm submitting to ACS Nano using the achemso class. I use an external .bib file. Is it normal that the bibitems that are treated as @Review are not formatted the same as @Article? For the latter, it includes the journal name, while for the Review, it omits the journal and it puts the title italic instead...

  1. Geim, A. K.; Novoselov, K. S. The rise of graphene. Nature Materials 2007, 6, 183–191.
  2. Neto, A. H. C.; Guinea, F.; Peres, N. M. R.; Novoselov, K. S.; Geim, A. K. The electronic properties of graphene, 2009.

With the second being the review...

According to Tame the BeaST, pp. 14--15, @review is not a standard BibTeX type. Also, achemso.bst does not make provisions for such a type. My guess is that your @review bibitem is treated (and formatted) as @misc.

Spot on. An article which is a review is still classed as @article (not just for achemso: this is general). – Joseph Wright Mar 23 '11 at 10:55
+1 for the link. That looks pretty good. Although, pros use biblatex, so parts of it are irrelevant... – Seamus Mar 23 '11 at 11:43
@Seamus @Joseph @Lockstep : Thanks for your answers. @Review comes from the fact I'm using Mekentosj Papers software which exports using this format for reviews... I'll change them manually into @Article then. – Nigu Mar 24 '11 at 7:53
