The Chemistry Department prefers The ACS Style Guide: Effective Communication of Scientific Information, 3rd ed., edited by Anne Coghill and Lorrin Garson (American Chemical Society, 2006, 2012) for citation formatting. You can find the print guide at the Research Help Desk on the main floor of the library (call number QD 8.5 .A25 2006), or click the ACS Style Guide cover or title above to access the online version.
Additionally, you may consult the ACS Style Quick Guide for easy reference to citation examples. You may also view Style Guide Chapter 14 Quick Reference or the ACS guidelines (PDF) for Preparing a Research Report to assist you.
For more information about citation styles, see the library webpage on Citation Guides.
