Chicago Style

Chicago style is another way to format an essay and document sources. Writers often use Chicago style to document the sources of historical research. Chicago style values readability by putting in-text citations in footnotes rather than in the paragraph. When do you think you might use Chicago style?

Chicago Manual of Style 16th editionThe Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., favored by some fields in the humanities, such as history, uses a raised numeral in the text after the item cited, and then either a footnote at the end of the page or an endnote at the end of the essay. These notes contain full bibliographic information about the source. Additionally, a complete bibliography is typically included at the end of the paper.
