  • @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].

  • \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.
