I would like to know whether there is some pre-implemented way of using the Vancouver citation style (as defined in Wikipedia) with Latex, or if not how I should go about setting it up myself.
In order to make this question self-contained, I'll recall the Vancouver style here:
Essentially, one places the reference in either a footnote or an endnote. There are then two options for the references:
Short reference in footnote, e.g. Kübler-Ross, On Death and Dying, Pages 45-60, and then Bibliography (at end of document) with full reference, e.g. Kübler-Ross, Elisabeth. On Death and Dying. New York: Macmillan, 1969.
Long reference in footnote, e.g. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, On Death and Dying (New York: Macmillan, 1969), Pages 45-60, and no Bibliography.
I am therefore looking for a \citeShort and \citeLong that produce the desired output, as above in 1 and 2, respectively, e.g.
Kübler-Ross, On Death and Dying, Pages 45-60
(Because, I may want to include some discussion in the footnote, as well as the reference, I think it is best not to include the footnote command in the new citation command, though it may also be efficient at times to have e.g. \citeShortFoot.)
Then for the Bibliography, I could use authordate1 or alpha, and remove the "numbering" as explained in this answer.
Is it possible to define these citation commands using bibtex or natbib? Or would I have to use biblatex? And how would I go about it?
