Civil Engineering Style Format from the ASCE Template for Journal Authors

ASCE uses the author-date method for in-text references, whereby the source reads as the last names of the authors, then the year (e.g., Smith 2004 or Smith and Jones 2004 or Smith, Jones, et. al. 2004). A References section must be included that lists all references alphabetically by last name of the first author.

For your reference list, ASCE encourages authors to use the Overleaf template for preparing LaTeX files. The platform and use of the template are free. The template is available here:

Within the text, references should be cited in numerical order according to their order of appearance. The numbered reference citation should be enclosed in brackets.


It was shown by Prusa [1] that the width of the plume decreases under these conditions.

In the case of two citations, the numbers should be separated by a comma [1,2]. In the case of more than two references, the numbers should be separated by a dash [5-7].

References to original sources for cited material should be listed together at the end of the paper and arranged in numerical order according to the sequence of citations within the text. Each reference should include the last name of each author followed by his initials.
