Chicago/Turabian Author-Date Citation Style

Prints according to the author-date style (frequently used by those in physical, natural, and social sciences) described in The Chicago Manual of Style and Kate Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. For more information, see the Chicago Manual of Style site.

Use the templates below to verify and correct the formatting of your document citations for the main publication types in ProQuest. In particular, the format of author names and publication dates in individual citations is likely to need further adjustment.

Author initials should be followed by periods and separated by a space (for example: Other A. N.).

The recommended date order is: month day, year.
