We cite sources to acknowledge the work of others, as well as to avoid academic dishonesty or plagiarism. There are various formats for citing sources and your instructor will tell you which to follow.
The ACS style guide: Effective communication of scientific information. Washington, DC : American Chemical Society, 2006.
Proper citation of the NIST WebBook. Data in the WebBook should be cited as though they are in a series of chapters in a book. The individual chapters are not the pages of data on a single molecule but rather the collection of data of a particular type. See examples.
There are many programs that allow you to organize references and
create bibliographies. Listed below are some of the most commonly used on campus.
