APA, CBE, and Chicago Style: CBE Style of Documentation in the Sciences and Mathematics

This style is recommended by the Council of Biology Editors (CBE) for all scientific disciplines in Scientific Style and Format: The CBE Manual for Authors, Editors, and Publishers, 6th ed. (Cambridge: Cambridge UP, 1994). However, some professors, particularly those teaching introductory courses, will not insist on your following one specific style manual as long as you are careful about citing and documenting sources and remain consistent in the format you use. When you write papers for a college course, make sure you ask your instructor for guidelines.
