A Few Notes about CSE Style

The CSE style has several unique requirements, so be sure to check your citations carefully. A few things to note about CSE style:

  • There are two systems with CSE style: Name-Year and Citation-Sequence. Be sure to be informed if your professor has a preference, and use the same system consistently throughout your work.
  • Unlike most citation styles, there are no commas between an author's last name and first name 
  • You must include the number of pages of a book at the end of a book citation
  • You must abbreviate journal titles (see below).
