Subject:Citation format for biological sciences. From:IHA2000 <IHA2%UTEP -dot- bitnet -at- UTEPVM -dot- EP -dot- UTEXAS -dot- EDU> Date:Thu, 26 May 1994 23:58:44 MDT
A. Harmon asked what is the most commonly accepted citation format for
the biological sciences. Another list member replied that the APA
format is common. This holds true for psychology and sociology. For
papers in general biology, zoology, botany, etc., the Council of
Biological Editors (CBE) citation format is the preferred. Formats of
the leading journals in the field are also very common. Thesis and
dissertations follow a completely different set of rules. Graduate
schools generally have their own citation and style guidelines that
vary from department to department and institution to institution.
I hope this helps.
