What is CSE Style?

The Council of Science Editors citation gives readers information needed to find your resources in the reference list and in-text references that show readers the sources that back your claims in a particular sentence. There are three systems of documentation used in CSE (Citation-sequence, Citation-name, and Name-year). Make sure to ask your instructor which system they prefer.
