Citation and Style Guide

A guide to resources and best practices for citation, academic integrity and bibliographic management.

The Chicago Manual of Style/Turabian citation style has two different methods for citation:

  • Notes and bibliography style is common in the humanities, including literature, history and the arts. 
  • Author-date style is common in the physical, natural and social sciences. 

    Chicago/Turabian, Why Two Names?

  • Chicago Manual (CMOS) is primarily intended as a style guide for published works.

  • Turabian, "largely based on CMOS with some slight alterations and additions", is for student papers.
