Scientific Citation Help

Ask your professor what style you should use for your papers and reference lists. Some prefer the style in a specific journal (RefWorks has many of these styles as automatic bibliography creators), and some prefer CSE.

Scientific Style and Format: The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers is the preferred citation style for many scientific disciplines. The 7th edition (2006) of the CSE Manual is the most current complete manual. 

The 7th edition is available at the 2nd floor Reference Desk. A copy is also available for check-out on the 8th Floor.  Also, check out these CSE-related websites:
