CSE (Council of Science Editors)

[Formerly called the CBE Council of Biology Editors style.] CSE is the format preferred by writers in many disciplines in the natural sciences, including biology, geology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics.

These systems differ in their presentation of in-text citations and in the way works cited are listed.
