The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) covers a variety of topics from manuscript preparation and

publication to grammar, usage, and documentation and has been lovingly called the “editor’sbible.” The
material in this resource focuses primarily on one of the two CMOS documentation styles: the Notes-
Bibliography System (NB), which is used by those in literature, history, and the arts. The other
documentation style, the Author-Date System, is nearly identical in content but slightly different in form and
is preferred in the social sciences.

In addition to consulting The Chicago Manual of Style (17th ed.) for more information, students may
also find it useful to consult Kate L. Turabian's Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and
Dissertations (8th ed.). This manual, which presents what is commonly known as the "Turabian" citation
style, follows the two CMOS patterns of documentation but offers slight modifications suited to student

Notes and Bibliography (NB) in Chicago style

The Chicago NB system is often used in the humanities and provides writers with a system for
referencing their sources through footnote or endnote citation in their writing and through bibliography
pages. It also offers writers an outlet for commenting on those cited sources. The NB system is most
commonly used in the discipline of history.
The proper use of the NB system can protect writers from accusations of plagiarism, which is the
intentional or accidental uncredited use of source material created by others. Most importantly, properly
using the NB system builds credibility by demonstrating accountability to source material.

Introduction to Notes
In the NB system, you should include a note (endnote or footnote) each time you use a source,
whether through a direct quote, paraphrase, or summary. Footnotes will be added at the end of the page on
which the source is referenced, and endnotes will be compiled at the end of each chapter or at the end of the
entire document.
In either case, a superscript number corresponding to a note with the bibliographic information for
that source should be placed in the text following the end of the sentence or clause in which the source is
If a work includes a bibliography, which is typically preferred, then it is not necessary to provide full
publication details in notes. However, if a bibliography is not included with a work, the first note for each
source should include all relevant information about the source: author’s full name, source title, and facts of
publication. If you cite the same source again, or if a bibliography is included in the work, the note need
only include the surname of the author, a shortened form of the title (if more than four words), and page
number(s). However, in a work that does not include a bibliography, it is recommended that the full citation
be repeated when it is first used in a new chapter.
In contrast to earlier editions of CMOS, if you cite the same source two or more times consecutively,
CMOS recommends using shortened citations. In a work with a bibliography, the first reference should use a
shortened citation which includes the author’s name, the source title, and the page number(s), and
consecutive references to the same work may omit the source title and simply include the author and page
number. Although discouraged by CMOS, if you cite the same source and page number(s) from a single
source two or more times consecutively, it is also possible to utilize the word “Ibid.,” an abbreviated form of
the Latin ibidem, which means “in the same place,” as the corresponding note. If you use the same source
but a different page number, the corresponding note should use “Ibid.” followed by a comma and the new
page number(s).
In the NB system, the footnote or endnote itself begins with the appropriate full-sized number,
followed by a period and then a space.
Introduction to Bibliographies
In the NB system, the bibliography provides an alphabetical list of all sources used in a given work.
This page, most often titled Bibliography, is usually placed at the end of the work preceding the index. It
should include all sources cited within the work and may sometimes include other relevant sources that were
not cited but provide further reading.
Although bibliographic entries for various sources may be formatted differently, all included sources
(books, articles, websites, etc.) are arranged alphabetically by author’s last name. If no author or editor is
listed, the title or, as a last resort, a descriptive phrase may be used.
Though useful, a bibliography is not required in works that provide full bibliographic information in
the notes.

Common Elements
All entries in the bibliography will include the author (or editor, compiler, translator), title, and
publication information.

Author Names
The author’s name is inverted in the bibliography, placing the last name first and separating the last
name and first name with a comma; for example, John Smith becomes Smith, John. If an author is not listed
first, this principle applies to compilers, translators, etc.

Titles of books and journals are italicized. Titles of articles, chapters, poems, etc. are placed in
quotation marks.

Publication Information
The year of publication is listed after the publisher or journal name.

What is IEEE Style?

The Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is a professional organization supporting many
branches of engineering, computer science, and information technology. In addition to publishing journals,
magazines, and conference proceedings, IEEE also makes many standards for a wide variety of industries.

IEEE citation style includes in-text citations, numbered in square brackets, which refer to the full citation
listed in the reference list at the end of the paper. The reference list is organized numerically, not
alphabetically. For examples, see the IEEE Editorial Style Manual.

The Basics:

In-text Citing It is not necessary to mention an author's name, pages used, or date of publication in the in-
text citation. Instead, refer to the source with a number in a square bracket, e.g. [1], that will then correspond
to the full citation in your reference list.

Place bracketed citations within the line of text, before any punctuation, with a space before the first bracket.

Number your sources as you cite them in the paper. Once you have referred to a source and given it a
number, continue to use that number as you cite that source throughout the paper.

When citing multiple sources at once, the preferred method is to list each number separately, in its own
brackets, using a comma or dash bteween numbers, as such: [1], [3], [5] or [1] - [5].

The below examples are from Murdoch University's IEEE Style LibGuide.

Examples of in-text citations:

"...end of the line for my research [13]."

"This theory was first put forward in 1987 [1]."

"Scholtz [2] has argued that..."

"Several recent studies [3], [4], [15], [16] have suggested that...."

"For example, see [7]."

Creating a Reference List The Reference List appears at the end of your paper and provides the full
citations for all the references you have used. List all references numerically in the order they've been cited
within the paper, and include the bracketed number at the beginning of each reference.

Title your list as References either centered or aligned left at the top of the page.

Create a hanging indent for each reference with the bracketed numbers flush with the left side of the page.
The hanging indent highlights the numerical sequence of your references.

The author's name is listed as first initial, last name. Example: Adel Al Muhairy would be cited as A. Al
Muhairy (NOT Al Muhairy, Adel).

The title of an article is listed in quotation marks.

The title of a journal or book is listed in italics.

What is Turabian Style?

Based on Kate L. Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations,
Turabian citation style presents two basic documentation systems, notes-bibliography style (or simply
bibliography style) and author-date style (previously called parenthetical citations–reference list style).
These styles are essentially the same as those presented in The Chicago Manual of Style with slight
modifications for the needs of student writers.

Notes/Bibliography style is used widely in literature, history, and the arts. This style presents bibliographic
information in footnotes or endnotes and, usually, a bibliography.

Author-date style has long been used in the physical, natural, and social sciences. In this system, sources
are briefly cited in parentheses in the text by author’s last name and date of publication. The parenthetical
citations are amplified in a list of references, where full bibliographic information is provided.

Vancouver style


Vancouver is a numbered referencing style commonly used in medicine and science, and consists of:

 citations to someone else's work in the text, indicated by the use of a number
 a sequentially numbered reference list at the end of the document providing full details of the
corresponding in-text reference

It follows rules established by the International committee of Medical Journal Editors, now maintained by
the U.S. National Library of Medicine. It is also known as Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts submitted
to Biomedical Journals.

This guide is modeled on Citing Medicine: The NLM Style Guide for Authors, Editors, and Publishers (2nd
edition). You may wish to consult this source directly for additional information or examples.

Printing this guide: Please note printing directly from pages in this guide may alter the citation formatting
display. A printable document is available below. Note that this document is adapted from this online guide
and does not contain all information and examples. Please use it in conjunction with the online guide which
is more regularly updated.

Reference list: General notes

Please check with your faculty for any specific referencing or formatting requirements
 References are listed in numerical order, and in the same order in which they are cited in text. The
reference list appears at the end of the paper.
 Begin your reference list on a new page and title it 'References.'
 The reference list should include all and only those references you have cited in the text. (However,
do not include unpublished items such as correspondence).
 Use Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).
 Abbreviate journal titles in the style used in the NLM Catalog
 Check the reference details against the actual source - you are indicating that you have read a source
when you cite it.
 Be consistent with your referencing style across the document.

Referencing Appendices

Referencing your own appendices in your own text

 Your appendix does not need to be referenced. It is enough to signpost it the body of your work: for
example (See Appendix A).
 If you created your own appendix, and you've cited references, then number the references within the
appendix consecutively in sequence with your written text and include them in your reference list.

Referencing appendices not written by you

 If the appendix was not written by you then place the numbered citation, in sequence with the rest of
the text, at the end of the appendix and include the full reference in your reference list.
