Anthropology uses the Chicago Manual of Style's Author-Date citation formatting style as a guide for citing sources in academic papers and publication. Below are some examples of how to cite common resources in Chicago Style Author-Date format. Author-Date format uses in-text parenthetical citations paired with a references list at the end of the paper. When looking on-line for assistance with citing works or using citation tools, make sure you are using Author-Date materials and not materials for the Chicago Notes and Bibliography style. For more detailed information, please visit the links on the left sidebar.
If you can't find an example of the kind of source you need to cite below, visit the Chicago Manual of Style Author-Date Citation Quick Guide for more sample citations for a much wider variety of resources.
Some of the information on this page comes from the library's Citing Sources & Avoiding Plagiarism guide, edited by Mandi Goodsett.
In the Author-Date or "Reference List" format of Chicago or Turabian Citation Style, sentences with material from another source (quoted or paraphrased) are cited immediately afterward with a parenthetical citation (format is listed as P below), as well as a citation in the "works cited" or bibliography at the end of the paper (format is listed as R below).
P = Parenthetical in-text
R = Reference entry (Work Cited / Bibliography)
