*Some departments or universities allow or require single spacing or one and a half spaces between lines in the body of the text. , written specifically for students, covers every aspect of research paper writing, from thinking up a topic to submitting the paper in official Chicago format.
*For a thesis or dissertation, most departments and universities provide model title pages that should be followed exactly for wording and form. Count the title page as page i, but do not put that number on it.

Since The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) is primarily intended as a style guide for published works rather than class papers, these guidelines will be supplemented with information from, Kate L.
Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (8th ed.), which is largely based on CMOS with some slight alterations.To see a side-by-side comparison of the three most widely used citation styles, including a chart of all CMOS citation guidelines, see the Citation Style Chart.Please use the example at the bottom of this page to cite the Purdue OWL in CMOS.If you already know which system to use, follow one of the links above to see sample citations for a variety of common sources. The notes and bibliography style is popular in the humanities—including literature, history, and the arts.In this system, sources are cited in numbered footnotes or endnotes.Unlike many citation styles, CMOS gives writers two different methods for documenting sources: the Author-Date System and the Notes-Bibliography (NB) System.As its name suggests, Author-Date uses parenthetical citations in the text to reference the source's author's last name and the year of publication.Each parenthetical citation corresponds to an entry on a References page that concludes the document.In these regards, Author-Date is very similar to, for instance, APA style.By contrast, NB uses numbered footnotes in the text to direct the reader to a shortened citation at the bottom of the page.This corresponds to a fuller citation on a Bibliography page that concludes the document.
