How to shorten the reference format to maximum one line per reference so that it fits to the guidelines. I have already used APA format. But is there any other format for doing so?

There is a very compact format that is used in this paper: https://www.science.org/doi/full/10.1126/science.1089072

Here is an extract:

  1. J. Ihmels et al., Nature Genet. 31, 370 (Aug, 2002).
  2. E. Ravasz, A. L. Somera, D. A. Mongru, Z. N. Oltvai, A.-L. Baraba´si, Science 297, 1551 (2002).
  3. C. R. Myers, arXiv: cond-mat/0305575 (2003).
  4. J. J. Hopfield, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 79, 2554 (1982).
