CMS Citation Style Examples

The Chicago Manual Style (CMS) is used in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. There are two styles with slightly different formatting included as part of CMS: author-date and notes and bibliography. Author-date uses in-text parenthetical citations with the author's last name and publication date, whereas notes and bibliography uses footnotes for citation information. Check with your instructor to learn which they prefer you use.
