About Chicago Style (Turabian)

Chicago Style is the standard for many university press publishers and is used by many programs within the humanities. The style is flexible and is not tied to a discipline, although history is the discipline most closely associated with the notes and bibliography version of the style.

Both the American Anthropological Association and the American Political Science Association once used their own style guides based on Chicago Style, but both associations are now using the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
