Basic Features of Chicago • Page number starts with the first page, not the title page. • The title of the paper is in CAPS. • There is no title on the first page as a rule. • Chicago presupposes the use of footnotes or endnotes. Note numbers should be placed at the end of the clause or sentence to which they refer. Footnotes should be added at the end of the page on which the source is referenced. • The list of sources is labelled ‘Bibliography’. • The formatting of footnotes and entries in the Bibliography differ: author’s name is not inverted in the footnotes but is inverted in the Bibliography. • In the Bibliography, all major elements are separated by periods whereas in notes, all major elements are usually separated by commas. • Headings of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd level are formatted using the title case. Headings of the 4th and 5th level are formatted using the sentence case. • All titles in Chicago are formatted using the title case. • Longer works (books, journals, movies) are italicized and parts of works (book chapters, articles) are in quotation marks in the text, in the notes and in the Bibliography in Chicago.
