Major Citation Styles for Engineers
Links to chapter 5 PDF of Publishing in ASCE Journals: Manuscript Submission and Revision Requirements
The ASME site states: "Note: ASME primarily uses the Chicago Manual of Style for reference format. Authors are encouraged to seek out precise instructions via: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/. ASME does not allow references to Wikipedia."
The IEEE says:
"The IEEE Editorial Style Manual (PDF, 823 KB) contains a formal set of editorial guidelines for IEEE Transactions, Journals, and Letters"
"For guidance on grammar and usage not included in the above documents, consult The Chicago Manual of Style, published by the University of Chicago Press."
