Chicago Manual of Style

Chicago Manual of Style is used in the humanities, especially history.

 

Format

Chicago Style (sometimes referred to as its modified form: Turabian) has two different and distinct citation styles:

  • The Humanities use the bibliography & notes style 
  • The Scientific and Social Science communities use a Reference list & author-date in-text citations
