Chicago Citation & Style Guide

Formatting

►  Margins should be between 1" and 1.5".

►  Typeface should be readable such as Times New Roman.

►  Preferable font size is 12 pt. but should be no less than 10 pt.

►  Except for block quotations text should be double-spaced.

►  Major paper sections include title page, main body of paper, and a references page at the end. Label the reference page "Bibliography" for the Notes and Bibliography style. If using the alternate system (Author-Date) consult The Chicago Manual of Style.
