The ACS style is a set of standards for writing documents relating to chemistry, including a standard method of citation in academic publications, developed by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The printed versions of the ACS style manual are entitled ACS Style Guide: Effective Communication of Scientific Information, 3rd ed. (2006), edited by Anne M. Coghill and Lorrin R. Garson, and ACS Style Guide: A Manual for Authors and Editors (1997).

- J. Org. Chem. – Journal of Organic Chemistry
- Org. Lett. – Organic Letters
- Phys. Rev. Lett. – Physical Review Letters
- Tetrahedron – Tetrahedron
- Tetrahedron Lett. – Tetrahedron Letters
- Acc. Chem. Res. – Accounts of Chemical Research
