Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

The ACM doesn't specify where to defer for additional style rules. Their reference examples closely follow APA format. If you are looking for style rules that do not correspond to the examples in their template, I recommend deferring to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association [APA Manual] for additional rules on style and usage. 




American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE)




American Chemical Society (ACS)








IEEE defers to the Chicago Manual of Style for additional rules on grammar and usage not included in their own style manual. UT Arlington Libraries have access to the Chicago Manual both online and in print, listed below.
