Citations: Citing Your Sources: CSE

Instructions and quick guides for citing sources.

Getting Started with CSE

CSE Style refers to the citation style established by the Council of Science Editors and is used primarily in the sciences. To cite in CSE style you will need the following:

  • Author or editor's name(s)
  • Title of the work
  • Publication information
  • Date of publication
  • Edition, volume and page numbers
  • URL and/or the database name
  • Date you accessed an electronic document

Use whichever style your professor recommends. For additional help, visit the CSE style guides below. Some of the databases, such as EBSCOhost and ProQuest have a citation button, which will automatically create citations for each source.
