Chicago B (Author-Date and Reference List)

Chicago B (Author-Date and Reference list)

Chicago has two styles.

This guide is for Chicago B: author-date and a list of references.

Chicago B is an author-date style with two key components:

  1. A citation appears in the text, comprising the name of the author and year of publication.
  2. A reference list at the end of the paper, alphabetically listing, by author family name, all references used in the text.

Note: A reference list is the same as a bibliography, but is the description used with author-date citation styles. Make sure to use the correct label.

The following resources have been used to prepare the examples

These are referred to as the "Manual" and "Turabian," respectively.
