Chicago 15th A STYLE
How-to” guide

NOTE:

Before you compile your bibliography, check with your lecturer/tutor for the bibliographic style preferred by the School.

INTRODUCTION


The Chicago Manual of Style allows for two different types of reference styles: o Notes-Bibliography Style (the subject of this guide), and the o Author-Date System (refer to the Chicago 15th B Style guide). While the Notes-Bibliography Style allows for either footnotes or endnotes, this guide will deal with footnotes only in a format suitable for undergraduate essays. Bibliographic citations are provided in footnotes, supplemented by a bibliography at the end of the document. Your footnotes and bibliography should identify references cited (eg. book, journal article, Internet site, video) in sufficient detail so that others may locate and consult your references. Punctuation marks and spaces within the citation are very important. Follow the punctuation and spacing exactly as given in the examples. For situations not listed here, see chapters 16 and 17 of the 15th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. It is available online via the UQ Library catalogue.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

The text of your document will contain reference numbers linking to the footnotes at the bottom of the page, like this:

At the end of your document, all the works cited (and any other works that you consulted) will be listed in a bibliography, arranged alphabetically by author. The references in the bibliography are in a slightly different format:

FOOTNOTES



Footnotes are created by the footnote function of the word processing software, which will generate a numbered marker in the text. The footnote markers in the text should be superscript Arabic numerals. Footnotes are numbered consecutively, beginning with 1. Insert footnotes at the end of the sentence or at the end of a clause, following any punctuation. For example: There has been considerable debate concerning this question.5

Footnotes can be used for comments as well as for bibliographical references. Multiple citation: A note that applies to more than one location should be cross-referenced, e.g. 18.

See note 3 above.



Multiple references: Several citations or comments can be included in a single footnote, separated by a semi-colon, e.g. A. B. Bosworth, Conquest and Empire: The Reign of Alexander the Great (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1988), 37; J. F. C. Fuller, The Generalship of Alexander the Great (Westport: Greenwood Press, 1981), 105. 5.



Full details must be given in the footnote at the first mention of any work cited. Subsequent citations should be shortened, whenever possible. Do not use the abbreviation op. cit. 12.

A. B. Bosworth, Conquest and Empire: The Reign of Alexander the Great (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1988), 37. Bosworth, Conquest and Empire, 83.

18.

The short form of a citation consists of the family name of the author(s) and the main title of the work cited, usually shortened if more than four words. The specific page reference follows the bibliographical details, as shown in the above examples. If the work consists of more than one volume, the volume number appears first, followed by a colon, e.g. 7.

Manning Clark, A History of Australia (Carlton, Vic.: Melbourne University Press, 1962), 1: 243.



The abbreviation Ibid. (from the Latin “ibidem” meaning “in the same place”) refers to a single work cited in the footnote immediately preceding: 5. 6.

Bosworth, Conquest and Empire, 241. Ibid., 258–59.



For a work by more than three authors, the citation in the footnote should give the name of the first author in full, followed by "and others", with no intervening comma. See example 7 in the Book section below. Optionally, the Latin abbreviation "et al." may be used instead of "and others."...
