Council of Science Editors Reference Style

Table of Content


Implementation of the Council of Science Editors (CSE) reference style. There are three versions of this style:
  • Citation Sequence: numeric in-text citation based on the order of appearance in the text;
  • Name Sequence: numeric in-text citation based on the position of the source within the alphabetically ordered bibliography;
  • Name Year: classic author-date citation system.
Currently, only an implementation of the first two is available.

As the current version of the bibliography tools in Word 2007 does not support to order a bibliography and use the position as in-text citation, the BibOrder tool is needed to achieve the Name Sequence version of the style.

Based On

Supported Types

The current versions of the style support the following types and subtypes:
  • ArticleInAPeriodical
  • Book
    • ElectronicBook
  • BookSection
    • ElectronicBookSection
  • ConferenceProceedings
  • DocumentFromInternetSite
  • ElectronicSource
  • Film
  • InternetSite
  • JournalArticle
  • Patent
  • Report
    • Thesis
  • SoundRecording
Note: To use the subtypes (e.g. Thesis), enter the data using the base type (e.g. Report) and set the Type field of the source to the value of the subtype (e.g. Thesis).


  • You can change the surrounding brackets for in-text citations by changing the contents of the openbracket and closebracket elements.
  • You can change the look of the numbers in the first column of the bibliography by changing the format element of the first column (column id="1"). Note that you have to do this for each type separately. Some examples are:
  <!-- Number between square brackets (current implementation). Example: 1 -->
  <!-- Number between round brackets. Example: (1) -->
  <!-- Number followed by a period. Example: 1. -->
