I am using RMarkdown to make a document with references from a .bib file as shown below. How can change the font size and line spacing of the references list printed at the end of the page

author: "Keniajin
bibliography: bibliography.bib
csl: vancouver.csl
documentclass: article
fontsize: 12pt
linestretch: 1.5
link-citations: yes
linkcolor: blue
    fig_caption: yes
      in_header: mystyle.sty
    keep_tex: yes
    latex_engine: xelatex

You simply can't with pandoc. However, there is a workaround. Just after the last title #References for example, you can add some tex directly and then render the file using the -s flag.

Here is a MWE (using pandoc instead of Rmd):

bibliography: ./source/library.bib

# Lorem Ipsum

"Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet [@chou2003interactivity], consectetur, adipisci velit..."

# References


All references will have smaller size with this.
