I want to cite the IUPAC Compendium of of Chemical Terminology - Gold Book in ACS reference style (American Chemical Society). This resource is not just a web page and the ACS reference guide doesn't provide a style for this kind of web resource. On the other hand, the IUPAC Gold book provides a citation style under "Cite as" on individual pages.

What should I do? Cite as is given under "Cite as" or cite it as a single web page?

  • Do you use the resource solely as a web page, and not as a PDF/printed document? If so, then it is just a web page.

If a resource tells you how it wants to be cited, cite it that way.
