## Mathematics

The mathematics department follows the reference style of the Journals of the Canadian Mathematics Society (CMS): the Canadian Journal of Mathematics and the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin.

Both journals use the same referencing format. The Information for Authors provides a sample LaTeX document and PDF version.

## In Text Citations for CMS

CMS style uses a citation-sequence system for in-text references.

- Place a number in square brackets at the end of the sentence that contains the information that you are citing [1].
- This number corresponds to the order in which the source appears in the alphabetically-sorted reference list.
- LaTeX allows for page anchors from the in-text citation to the reference citation.

## References Page Using CMS

Use published sources that can be found in a library or online with a URL. Do not use unpublished or in progress sources like lecture notes or unpublished manuscripts.

### General Guidelines

- Use the title "References"
- Alphabetize the list of authors by first author surname and then number the list
- Put numbers in square brackets
- Use these final numbers for your in-text citations

- Abbreviate journal titles as per the standard abbreviations issued by Mathematical Reviews

### Formatting Guidelines

- Author names
- Standard format (even for first author): Initials (period and space between) surname
- Follow author list by a comma

- Titles
- Do not italicize titles of journal articles
- Italicize titles of books, theses, and websites
- Capitalize only the first word of a journal article title
- Capitalize words within the title of the book but not the chapter
- Use the abbreviated form of the journal title (see link above)

- Include the URL of websites
