Guide to APA and Chicago citation for LS 102 students: About Chicago/Turabian

What is Chicago style?

"Chicago style" originated at the University of Chicago Press and is used today by many historical journals and some social science journals.

"Turabian style" is closely related to the Chicago style. You might hear them used interchangeably, but Turabian has some differences geared towards student publications.

Many people refer to the two citation styles collectively as "Chicago/Turabian style."
