CHEM 4310 - Instrumental Analysis - Sebree: Citing Sources

ACS Style Guide

Journal of the ACS Author Guidelines

ChemWorx citation manager

See these instructions for how to format a citation in ACS style using ChemWorx.

ERROR message? Getting a "your connection is not private" message when attempting to get to ChemWorx? This is caused by security requirements of the most recent version of Chrome (and perhaps other browsers). Here's what to do: 
1. Simply choose Advanced at the bottom
2. Then choose the ChemWorx link that will appear at the bottom. It will be marked as "unsafe", but don't let that stop you. :)
