Citing Sources Guide

Assists in the citation and referencing of styles used at Northwestern


The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) uses the author-date style of referencing. Guides on the Author Services page of the ASCE Library website provide consistent explanations and multiple examples of in-text citing and reference lists. While similar, I've provided two links so that you have access to a variety of examples from different publication formats. 

  • View a concise explanation of Author-Date References, including in-text citing and reference list examples. Use the Sections menu to choose a specific type of example or download the document in pdf.
  • Further guidance and examples can be found in the Peer Review Process chapter. You'll want to use the Sections menu and scroll down to select "References."  This document includes the most examples from a wide variety of publication formats.
