Glossary - CSE

is an acronym for The Council of Science Editors. This council has created three very specific systems for paper format and organization. Each of the three systems contain a list of references at the end of the writing, in which the reader can get the information needed to track the writer’s sources.

This style guide also has its set of rules for in-text references that point out to the exact sources that support the content’s information. The three systems of CSE differ in the formatting of in-text references, as well as the organization of the title page, reference list, as well as the heading order.

The three systems are the citation-name system, citation-sequence system, and the name-year system.
