I would like to use bibliography style vancouver to write my thesis. When I use \bibliographystyle{vancouver} it shows error. I am using overleaf. Is there anyone using vancouver style? Thanks.

  • Use plainnat instead. Vancouver just means numbered.

    \bibliographystyle{vancouver} works on Overleaf anyway; so if you're getting an error, there may be something else that's gone wrong in your code. The error message will give you hints about what's wrong.

  • What error does it show? What did you try? What does your document look like? Please consider showing us an MWE, a small example document that reproduces the problem.

  • Thanks @ Johannes_B. But it does not show the bibliography list alphabetically. It shows the order used in my text. I want the bibliography list alphabetically.

"It shows the order used in my text." is the default behaviour of the Vancouver system rather than an error. Instead of \bibliographystyle{vancouver}, use e.g. \bibliographystyle{plain} that is a numbered and alphabetically sorted citation style.
