Output Style Instructions


QuikBib strives for accuracy in all output styles. We recommend verifying that there are no new style instructions before submitting your paper.  Always check your reference list for accuracy.


Council of Science Editors - CSE 7th, Name-Year Sequence:





If there is no author in a reference omit authorship from the reference. RefWorks will use the Title in place of the author. The use of “anonymous” is not permitted. All author names should be entered last name followed by a space then first and middle initials (no spaces) followed by a comma (e.g., Jones JD).  The last author listed is followed by a period.  When there are 2 to 10 authors, list all of them, including the 10th author; if there are more than 10 authors, list the first 10 followed by “et al.” or “and others”.



Use the abbreviated periodical name if present, otherwise full. Title words, unabbreviated and abbreviated, are capitalized. Abbreviations are not followed by periods.



Capitalize only the first word of the title and of the subtitle, if any, and any proper nouns and proper adjectives.



An edition field may be needed for books published in 2nd or later editions; it should follow the title with the form, for example, "2nd ed" ("edition" abbreviated).



Only arabic numerals should be used for issue numbers. CSE allows the omission of the month (and day for weeklies) and issue number as an option for Journals with continuous pagination in volumes.
