The CSE Style Guide (Council of Science Editors), also called the Scientific Style and Format guide, is one of the main style guides used when citing resources in a research paper for many of the natural sciences. (It was formerly called the CBE style or manual.)
The citation examples provided in the box below are taken from Biol 322: Terrestrial Ecosystems handout: The Research Proposal.
It is based on the style format used by the journal: Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. For questions regarding the formatting of resources not included in this handout, please contact your instructor: Sam Nyanumba.
This section presents a list of the relevant research articles that have been used in section 2.
References styles vary between granting agencies, journals or even courses at Vancouver Island University. For this course, you will use the following format:
