What is ASABE Style?

ASABE Style is the referencing and citation style used in the scholarly journals published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. Its rules are published in ASABE Guide for Authors Online available on the organisation’s website.

Which journals use ASABE Style for references?

The journals using ASABE Style are mainly the ones published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, namely the following:

  • Journal of the ASABE;
  • Applied Engineering in Agriculture;
  • Journal of Natural Resources and Agricultural Ecosystems;
  • Journal of Agricultural Safety and Health;
  • Transactions of the ASABE.

What are the particularities of ASABE Style?

As stated in ASABE Guide for Authors, the bibliographic references are largely based on the rules of APA Style (6th ed.). Nevertheless, there are quite many differences that one might miss. For example, the titles of standalone works except books are not italicised, a different scheme is used for referencing dissertations and theses, and so on.

Also, ASABE uses different in-text citations.

Furthermore, the ordering of references in a bibliography differs in ASABE Style.
