About CSE style

This guide contains some examples of common citation formats in CSE Style (Council of Science Editors, formerly called the CBE Council of Biology Editors). 

The Council of Science Editor's (CSE) style is used for citing references in the physical and life sciences. 

The CSE style has two systems of citation, the Citation-Sequence system and the Name-Year system.  This guide will focus on the Name-Year system. 

Your CSE citations will include in text citations, as well as a Literature CIted at the end of your paper.

CSE was formerly called CBE style.

 The purpose of documentation is to:

  • Identify (cite) other people’s ideas and information used within your essay or term paper.
  • Indicate the authors or sources of these in a Literature Cited list at the end of your paper.

For complete citation information, see Scientific Style and Format: the CSE manual for authors, editors and publishers.



The general format and example below refers to maps published as independent sheets.

The cartographer is listed in place of an author, followed by [, cartographer], and information on the map type is listed after the title, e.g., [topographic map].

If it is relevant, include a brief physical description of the map: the number of sheets, size, color or black and white, and scale.
