Physics: AIP (American Institute of Physics) Style
Chemistry: ACS (American Chemical Society) Style
General Science: CSE (Council of Science Editors) Style
See the Clemson Libraries Citation Guides for additional style guides, including MLA (Modern Language Association, generally humanities), APA (American Psychological Association, generally social sciences), and the Chicago Manual of Style.
