What is Chicago style?

Chicago style is the creation of the University of Chicago Press. It is an old and successful format with several variations. Chicago style NB format (Note-Bibliography), Chicago-Style Research Paper Writing Guide follows that format.

Chicago style NB research papers are most frequently used for humanities and some social sciences:

  • Religion
  • Philosophy
  • Art
  • Music
  • Theater
  • History
  • Anthropology
  • Business
  • Computers/Technology
  • International Studies
  • Criminology

The biggest differences between Chicago style and MLA or APA papers is:

  • There are footnotes for each citation
  • The citations are superscripts

Chicago-style papers include a thesis statement at the end of the introductory paragraph. This is similar to the MLA papers your teens have written during high school.

Chicago style’s NB format is flexible in some ways. It allows teachers to instruct students to use section titles for transitions (just like APA papers) OR simply rely on transition sentences (just like MLA papers).
