Descriptive Labs

SECTION EIGHT : References

Acknowledging sources of information

List all the sources you referred to in writing the report, such as the lab manual, a textbook, a course packet, or a scientific article. Be sure to use the proper form of documentation for the scientific field you are working in (see Citations and References).

More Help:

  • Different scientific fields use somewhat different styles for documenting sources in the References. For example, in chemistry you would follow the American Chemical Society (ACS) style. In biology, it would be the Council of Biological Editors (CBE) style. Check to see which style is appropriate for your class.
  • You can find information about various documentation styles at Citations and References.
