Chicago book citation

First printed in 1906 by the University of Chicago Press, the Chicago Manual of Style is commonly used in history, art history, and anthropology, among other disciplines citing sources like books, scholarly articles, images, encyclopedias and others type of sources. The style guide, still published by the University of Chicago Press, is the standard for formatting and citation when publishing in the field of history. Some times you may use Turabian citation generator because Turabian style was born by Chicago style.

According to Chicago citation guide it allows for two different types of reference styles: the Author-Date System and the Documentary-Note (or Humanities) Style. Traditionally, those in the humanities and social sciences (including history) use the Documentary-Note Style, and those in the sciences use the Author-Date System.

Bellow is described how to create bibliography list in Chicago format within citation machine:

Begin the bibliography on a separate page at the end of the paper (after the endnotes).  Arrange entries alphabetically by the author’s last name (or by the title if the author is anonymous).  List the first author of each work with the last name first. List additional authors first-name first.  When an author appears more than once in a bibliography the ditto sign for his or her name appears as a line of six hyphens followed by a period. Begin the first line of each entry at the left margin. Additional lines in the entry are indented (this is called a hanging indent).

To create Chicago book citation within Chicago citation machine it is required to gather followed elements:

  • Author;
  • Title of book;
  • Place of publication;
  • Publisher;
  • Date.
