Q. What's the difference between Chicago Notes and Bibliography and Author-Date styles?


Chicago has two versions based on the type of research being done.  The Sciences and Social Sciences often use Author-Date style, which uses parenthetical in-text citations with a references list at the end of a paper.  The Arts and Humanities often uses Notes-Bibliography style, which relies on footnotes or endnotes with a bibliography at the end of a paper.

If you are unsure what version of Chicago to use, consult with your professor.
