In-Text Numbering Rules
CSE In-Text Numbering Rules are as follows:
In-text superscripted numbers appear after the punctuation and quotation marks at the end of a cited clause or sentence. There is no space between the punctuation and the numeral.
Source material located in the first part of a sentence separated by an em dash (two hyphens) is cited with the number placed before the dash begins.
Beginning with 1, each number follows in sequential order from page to page.
When citing a previously mentioned source, use the first number assigned to the source.
When referring to more than one source, separate the numbers using commas.
When referring to a source cited in another source, use the phrase "cited in":
