The Council of Science Editors scientific style of documentation is used primarily in the physical sciences, life sciences, and mathematics. CSE offers three systems for documenting sources: 1) a Citation-Sequence system, 2) a Citation- Name system and 3) a name-year system. This guide is meant to explain all three. The Citation-Sequence and Citation Name system share similarities. The Name - Year system is very similar to the Author-Date system used by the APA.
This guide is based on Scientific Style and Format: The CSE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers (8th ed.) 2014, a publication of the Council of Science Editors.
