Well in this class we are supposed to use Chicago style.


OK, great, let’s talk about how to properly cite sources in Chicago style. 

Let’s look at some examples of different types of materials you might use in your research and how they should be cited.

Journal article from a library database


This is an example of a citation found in a research database. All the elements that you need to cite the article properly are here. Journal citations require author(s), publication date, title of the article, title of the journal, volume and issue number, and page numbers. Also don’t forget to include the permanent link and access date.  Use the database name and accession number if the article does not have a permanent link.

They need to be reformatted and rearranged in order to comply with Chicago style guidelines.
