Is the syntax used in this tex.stackexchange answer valid?

The asker wants to cite a specific page in a single reference and uses the format:

Some assertion [1, p. 23].

Meaning reference number 1 and page 23 of that document.

  • What do you think might be wrong with it? – user2768 Aug 20 '19 at 13:12
  • @user2768 I have never seen it before. Some sources differ on the syntax. For example reference 1 and page 23 might be displayed like [1: 23]. – Morgoth Aug 20 '19 at 13:18
  • \cite[info]{key} is standard LaTeX. You can put what you like for info, e.g., you may use \S1, where 1 is the section number; pp1-3, where 1 is the first page and 3 is the last page; p1, where page 1 is the only page; some other style. Your choice of journal may specify some precise usage. – user2768 Aug 20 '19 at 14:34
