CSE Manual for Scientific Style and Format

How to document scientific writing using the CSE Manual

Legal Materials

The formats of legal materials are prescribed by the legal community. The formats remain unchanged in the end reference section regardless of the system used (C-S or C-N or N-Y). Do not change the sequence of the date of publication for a legal material, if you are using N-Y system. An item published in Federal Register should be cited the same way as a standard journal article. Abbreviate the title of publication to Fed Regist.

Examples: Clean Air Act. 42 U.S.C. Sect 7401 et seq.(1970).

Animal and animal products, 9 C.F.R. Sect. 319.15 (2003)
