Council of Science Editors (CSE) Citations
Create a CSE citation-sequence reference list
A reference list at the end of the document (headed "References" or "Cited References") is ordered according to the numbers assigned to the references in the text.
References other than text citations appear under other headings:
Documents you did not cite specifically but used as sources: list alphabetically by author under the heading "Additional References."
Supplementary documents that did not serve as sources: list alphabetically by author under "Additional Reading" or "Bibliography."
