Citation & Documentation: CSE

This guide is meant to help you with citing & documenting your sources. Different tabs have information about the main citations styles (APA, Chicago, MLA, & CSE) as well as links to citation tools you can use to organize and manage your references.

CSE

CSE Style was created by the Council of Science Editors, and is used in the sciences. CSE style has three sub-styles:

  1. Citation Sequence: Numbers are used within the text to refer to references which listed in a bibliography (called References) in the order that they appear in the text.
  2. Name Year: Parenthetical in-text citations and a bibliographical References.
  3. Citation Name: Numbers are used within the text to refer to references which listed in a bibliography (called References) alphabetically.
