Chicago Referencing Style

What is it?

Academic writing requires the author to support their arguments with reference to other published work or experimental results/findings. A reference system will perform three essential tasks:

  • Enable you to acknowledge other authors ideas (avoid plagiarism).
  • Enable a reader to quickly locate the source of the material you refer to so they can consult it if they wish.
  • Indicate to the reader the scope and depth of your research. Chicago referencing style is a widely used referencing system to help you achieve these objectives.

How do I use it?

The Chicago style involves two tasks:

  1. How you reference sources through numbered footnote or endnote citation as opposed to in text citation.
  2. How you compile a list of reference sources at the end of your text (reference list). Below is a list of some common citation types along with examples of how they are laid out.
