Citation Styles and Tools

Chicago Citation Style

Chicago Manual of StyleThe Chicago style is often used in the humanities and has two ways of citing:

(1) notes and bibliography and

(2) author-date.

Notes and Bibliography has sources cited through footnotes or endnotes in their writing and through bibliography pages. Author-date is similar to APA style, with in-text citations referencing the author and date. For example, (Jones, 1998).


Bibliography example of a citation from a journal article:
