Chemistry: Writing & Citing

This guide is designed to help you find materials available from the Houston Cole Library for research in chemistry.

Which style should I use?

The citation style you use depends on a variety of factors. Many disciplines tend to use one particular style over another. Your instructors may require you use a certain style, so ask about which manual to use before you start your research. If you are publishing one of your works, your editor may require that you use a certain style.

If you aren't required to use a specific style, use one that you are comfortable with and that best fits your needs. Just follow the guidelines and be consistent.
