Quick guide for Chicago Manual of Style - Author-Date Style

About Chicago Style

The Oceanographic Campus Library uses the Chicago Manual of Style: Author-Date Style as its default Citation Management Style.  Understanding how to interpret citations in research and how to create proper citations of your own is an extremely valuable skill for a publishing student and researcher.  

The Chicago Manual of Style was first published in 1906 under the title Manual of Style.  It was one of the first guides created to standardize American English manuscript formats for publication.  The manual provides guidelines on multiple aspects of creating a polished finished manuscript and is credited with leading the way in standardizing citation style in the bibliography.

Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) has guidelines for two different formats: author-date and notes-bibliography. This guide will discuss Author-Date only.
