Graduate Research in Engineering

Citation Styles in Engineering

It is important to cite the sources of your research.  You must give credit for others' ideas, data, and words.

There is no single citation style for engineering. If you're unsure which to use, I recommend asking your advisor or professor.

If you're preparing a manuscript for submission to a specific journal, consult the journal's guidelines for formatting and style.

TIP:  EndNote software can do much of the work for you.  See this page for details.
