CSE Citation Style

CSE Citation Manual ImageCSE (Council of Science Editors) is used primarily by the sciences. CSE has three citation systems to choose from:

1) citation–sequence;

2) citation-name; and

3) name-year.

In citation–sequence, the end references are listed in the sequence in which they first appear within the text. In citation–name, the end references are listed alphabetically by author. In name-year, in-text references contain author and year (for example, Jones 1998). End references appear in alphabetical order by author and year of publication, with multiple works by the same author listed chronologically.

Bibliography example of citation of a journal article:

Mazan MR, Hoffman AM. 2001. Effects of aerosolized albuterol on physiologic responses to exercise in standardbreds. Am J Vet Res. 62(11):1812–1817.
