Citation of documents

Scientific work requires that it be documented and that we cite the sources we have used as a way of recognizing the work of others and delimiting responsibilities or authorships. The omission of this recognition is considered appropriation and is called plagiarism.
Anything that is not in the public domain and does not belong to the public domain should be cited.

Within the text of the work, references or calls are made to a consulted document from which the idea we are expressing has been extracted, or a brief text is incorporated directly - in quotation marks - to indicate that it is a literal copy. References to the original document are made with an author-year key that will allow us to locate it in the bibliography section.
In the bibliography section we will present the list of the works used to do the work, cited following the most appropriate style according to our area of study and the purpose of our work.

The following table shows the styles most commonly used in the different areas of knowledge studied at IQS, according to EndNote, although the style requested for each paper or article for different scientific publications should be remembered or reported:
 
  Citation style Field of knowledge                                                       
  ISO-690 Interdisciplinary
  ACS Chemistry
  AIP Physics and Chemistry
  Chicago Economics, Humanities
  CSE Life sciences
  Harvard Science, Economics
  IEEE Engineering
  NLM Health sciences, Veterinary medicine
  Vancouver Health sciences, Veterinary medicine
