CBE Format


CBE citation style refers to the rules and conventions of the Scientific Citation Style applied to resources used in a research paper. The use of CBE citation style includes in-text citations that point to an alphabetical bibliography.

In-text citation implies the use of essential information to identify a source name-year format parenthesized. The examples of in-text citations are as follows:
Author's name in reference This concern has been expressed (Dover 2001).
Multiple authors of a work This hypothesis (Bradley and Rogers 2004) suggested this theory (Sumner, Reichl, and Waugh 2003).
Specific parts of a source Williams alludes to this premise (1998).
Two works cited (Burns 2002, Thomas 2003)
Corporate authors (United Nations, Economic Commission for Africa 1997)

Works with no author
When a work has no author, use the work's title or a shortened version of the title when citing it in text:
as stated by the presidential commission (Report 1994).
Online source with numbered paragraphs (Fox, pars. 4-5)

The bibliography page contains the list of all sources arranged in alphabetical order and containing all publishing information, including the author(s)/editor(s) name, date of publication, the complete title with only first word of the title capitalized, edition, if indicated, place of publication, the shortened name of publisher and page number.
