Chicago Style

Chicago style is commonly used in the Humanities, History, Business, and some Social Sciences. There are two options within Chicago: 

Notes-Bibliography Style (NB), which uses footnotes and/or endnotes, typically followed by a bibliography

Author-Date Style, which uses in-text parenthetical citations of author(s) last name, publication year and pages, followed by a bibliography.
