Chicago (AKA Turabian)

Turabian Style Introduction

Turabian style features two different ways of documenting your citations in a paper: the notes-bibliography (also referred to as bibliography) style and the author-date (also referred to as reference list) style.  If you are unsure which to use, consult your professor.

Bibliography style is often used in literature, history, and the arts.

Author-date style is often used in the physical, natural, and social sciences.
