Glossary - CBEP

is a citation style. It’s most commonly used in computer sciences, physics, health sciences, biology and mathematics, but it isn’t limited to only these. According to academic standards, each of the sources used in text must be properly cited, which is where the guidelines that accompany CBEP come into light.

The CBEP style differentiates between two different formats: the Name-Year and the Citation-sequence or C-S system. Based on the rules of these formats, it is the job of students and academics to properly organize, numerate, and alphabetize all the sources in the text.

The C-S system is most commonly used in mathematics, physics, computer science and health. The latter is most frequently used in biological and earth sciences.
