There are a number of publication styles used by the scientific disciplines or professions. In many cases the journal in which you are publishing determines the style of citation and author guidelines are often available on the journal's website.
Some of the more commonly used styles include the American Chemical Society (ACS), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the Council of Science Editors (CSE). Click on the covers below to access the style guides - online access is available for ACS and AMA, while a print version of CSE is available at Gumberg.
These titles are available either electronically or in print at Gumberg Library. In this course, students are expected to develop skills not only in writing scientifically, but in presenting those scientific findings and conclusions to different audiences.
