The Chicago Manual of Style sets the standard for scholarly publishing in the Humanities. Chicago offers two citation formats, the author-date reference format and the standard bibliographic format, each of which provides conventions for organizing footnotes or endnotes, as well as bibliographic citations. Chicago allows scholars accurately and thoroughly to denote and differentiate scriptural, classical, and archival, and other historical sources, as well as to represent the range of multimedia and other new electronic forms of publication.

The following examples demonstrate Chicago's standard bibliographic citation format from the 16th edition (2010).
