Finding Scholarly Journals

This highly thought of open access journal promises a speed and ease of publishing unheard of in most traditional life science journals. Initial decisions on a manuscript are usually made within days. Post-review decisions are made within weeks. Most articles only go through a single round of revisions.


Using the CSE (formerly CBE) Citation Style

The CSE (formerly CBE style) citation manual is often used for research papers in the sciences.  It is based on the Scientific style and format : the CSE manual for authors, editors, and publishers, which is available at both the Schaumburg and downtown Auditorium libraries.  The call number for the print copy is REF T11.S386 2006.  It is found on the Write & Cite shelf in the reference area.

The Ohio State University Libraries has a short guide on how to cite journal articles, books, web pages and other commonly used documents using this style.
