CSE Citation-Sequence Citation Guide, for Maria Kelly's Classes: In-text Citations

Introduction

When quoting or paraphrasing another person's words or ideas, credit must be given to that person. This is done with an in-text citation.  

In the Citation-Sequence system used by CSE, the in text citation is a number, either in superscript or in parentheses. The notations go in numerical order and correspond to the numbered references given at the end of the paper.

Example

In-text citation
It is important to monitor heart failure patients as they begin exercising (1).

OR

End citation
1. Smart N, Fang ZY, Marwick TH. A practical guide to exercise training for heart failure patients. J Card

      Fail. 2003;9(1):49-58.
