## Background

BibDesk is an extremely nice Mac GUI for managing BibTeX libraries. It doesn’t, however, come with the Vancouver style for citation previews, which is the standard style for most biomedical science journals. This post describes how to get the Vancouver style working with the BibDesk TeX previews.

## Instructions

1. Make sure that you have a TeX system installed, such as MacTeX.
2. Create the folder ~/Library/texfm/bibtex/bst/ if it does not exist.
6. Add \usepackage{hyperref} to it just above the \begin{document} line. This allows webpage citations to render properly.
