SoE Thesis Information

Graduate students who are getting ready to submit a thesis should see the Inamori School of Engineering Thesis Timeline and Graduate Manual.

School of Engineering Citation Style

The NY State College of Ceramics (SoE) uses a custom citation style.

The SoE style guidelines can be found below. 

For assistance with using the SoE style, ask your librarian.

Endnote - Citation Management

EndNote will ease your approach to formatting your reference list.  It will store, manage, and format your citations into a compact listing.

The software is contracted and available only to AU students, faculty and staff.  It can be downloaded and installed from 

U:Drive -> Public -> AU Libraries -> Endnote

Place the SoE style (link below) in the EndNote styles folder after you install the program, so EndNote will format references with the correct style.   When you create your file in EndNote, "Select other style" in the Style box.  Scroll to add SoE as the style for your file.

When you create your file, choose the SoE style (Select Other Style).

Journal Abbreviations

The SoE style requires using journal title abbreviations in the references list, a convention often found in scientific and technical publications.

The CASSI search tool can be used to generate the abbreviated form of journal titles. The tool can also be used to look up an abbreviated title and determine the full name of the journal.

JournalSeek is another searchable database for journal information. It has more coverage for journals in the arts, humanities, etc. than CASSI.
