American Chemical Society (ACS) Bibliographic Form

Unlike the MLA and APA forms of documentation, a numerical system of citing references is most often used in technological and scientific disciplines such as engineering and chemistry. A reference number precedes each item on the list of references. This reference number should be in parentheses to separate it from the page numbers.
