Chicago Manual of Style

The Chicago Manual of Style is used for History and some Humanities.

Instead of using in-text citations like MLA and APA does, Chicago uses footnotes or endnotes.  You can find footnotes/endnotes by clicking on the “insert” tab and/or the “reference” tab in Microsoft Word.
