Chicago (University of Chicago Press) referencing

This style is common in the humanities and social sciences. It allows for two different styles of referencing:

  • Chicago A uses footnotes for referencing
  • Chicago B uses ‘in-text’ references, also known as ‘Harvard’ or ’author-date’ references.

 Confirm which reference style you are supposed to use.
