Chicago Manual of Style

The Chicago Manual of Style has two different formats:

-notes and bibliography

-author-date

Most humanities courses use the notes and bibliography format, while the author-date format is common with social sciences. If you aren't sure which you should be using, check with your professor!

This guide will focus on the notes and bibliography format.

 

Selected Chicago Notes & Bibliography Examples

Notes on Notes

The first note should always contain a complete citation (example 1 below), subsequent notes may use the abbreviated form (example 2 below).

Subsequent notes that immediately follow a note from the same source and page may use "Ibid." as the full note (no quotation marks). If the source is the same, but the page is different, use "Ibid., page#."

Notes should ALWAYS be Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3....) NOT Roman (i, ii, iii...)
