Chicago Manual of Style Overview

Chicago is a editorial and citation style commonly used by book and journal publishers and is used in both humanities and science disciplines. The Chicago Manual of Style is often referred to as the "editor's bible" because it covers grammar and usage in addition to format. Unlike APA and MLA, Chicago uses a footnotes / endnotes format for citations.
