Citing Sources in Formal Writing Style 1: Chicago Style In text: At the point of citation, insert either a footnote or an endnote using your word processor’s “References > Footnote/Endnote” function. Example : Herodotus insists that “the Egyptians themselves in their manners and customs seem to have reversed the ordinary practices of mankind.” 1 -------------- 1 Herodotus, The Histories (London: Penguin Books, 2003), 109. Example : It is clear that the Greeks themselves had more than one meaning for the word demokratia. 1 -------------- 1 Paul Cartledge, “The Democratic Experiment,” BBC Ancient History: The Greeks , http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/greeks/greekdemocracy_01.shtml (accessed September 20, 2008), par. 2. Bibliographic information: At the end of the essay, you will then include the full bibliographic information of all books, articles, and websites used during the course of your research and writing. This includes both works cited in the essay as well as anything else you read but did not cite. These items should be listed in alphabetical order. Example
