The Chicago Manual of Style includes two referencing styles: Chicago A and Chicago B.
The Chicago B Author-Date Style is commonly used in the sciences and social sciences. In this style, sources are briefly cited in the text, usually in parentheses, by author’s last name and year of publication. Each in-text citation matches up with an entry in a reference list, where full bibliographic information is provided, at the end of the document.

If using Generative AI is permitted for your course, we've got referencing it correctly covered! See the newly added Generative AI section.
This guide is based on the Chicago Manual of Style Online (CMOS) 17th edition, 2017. It provides general guidelines only. Your lecturer’s instructions overrule these guidelines. Students should always check their Course Outline for any variations required or consult their lecturer.
