CSE Vancouver/Citation-Name: In-Text Citations
Citation-Sequence and Citation-Name
The Vancouver style uses a number each time an idea is paraphrased or quoted from a source. For the Vancouver style, the references on the references page are numbered and ordered within the list in the sequence in which they first appear in the text.
Number the references and list them in order as they first appear in the text. Subsequent citations from the same source use the original number assigned to that author. This means that the source indicated as (1), or 1, will be near the beginning of your writing and then may appear elsewhere in your paper, using the same number, you use that source again.
