Chicago 17th B: Sample reference list

Chicago 17th B

Formatting your reference list

Please check the assignment formatting requirements for your individual unit as they may differ from the advice provided in the Chicago manual.

  • Begin the reference list on a new page at the end of your work, preceding the index if there is one
  • Arrange the list alphabetically by the first author's surname or organisation name. Where there is no author, use the first word of the title (other than A, An, or The)
  • All titles should appear in headline-style capitalisation (where each significant word is capitalised)
  • Use a hanging indent for each reference
