With the exception of the placement of the date, the entries in the References list in CSE are uniform.
The placement of dates in the references list depends on the citation system.

In-text-citations are formatted differently in each citation system.
Either identify Author in a signal phrase and include the date of the citation in parentheses OR include both author name and date in the parentheses. When multiple references are listed in one parenthetical citation, arrange chronologically starting with the earliest date.
In the thorough study by Browne, it was determined that this method was not feasible (2001).
Future studies confirmed this finding (Wagner 2002; Williams and Hunt 2003).
Each in-text citation is followed by a superscript number based on where the source first appears in the text. For example, if the first reference in a citation-sequence system paper were to an article by Browne, the reference would be labeled this way:
In the thorough study by Browne1, it was determined that this method was not feasible.
After that, each time the Browne article is cited, it should be labeled with a superscript 1. Subsequent sources would be labeled 2, 3, 4, etc.
Each in-text citation is followed by a superscript number based on where the source appears in the alphabetical references list. For example, in a citation-name system paper relying on sources by Vang, by Browne, and by Abdi, those three sources would be arranged in the reference list alphabetically by author’s last name, and each source would have its own corresponding number assigned in that list: 1. Abdi; 2. Browne; 3. Vang.
Even in a case where the first reference in that paper is to an article by Browne, the in-text citation would be labeled with a superscript 2 because Browne is the second entry in the alphabetical reference list:
In the thorough study by Browne2, it was determined that this method was not feasible.
Thereafter, each time the Browne article is cited, it should be labeled with a superscript 2. Other sources would always be labeled according to their order in the references list (i.e., Abdi1, Vang3).
