Citation Guides

The following are citation and reference formatting styles you may use while studying at DePaul University.

  • Turabian Citation Guide
     Turabian is the style used most frequently in the International Studies Department and all students should consider investing in a copy of the Turabian Manual.
  •  The Chicago Manual of Style​
    The Chicago Manual of Style presents two basic documentation systems, the humanities style (notes and bibliography) and the author-date system. Choosing between the two often depends on subject matter and nature of sources cited, as each system is favored by different groups of scholars.  This Quick Guide is based on the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style and is maintained by the University of Chicago Press.
  • APA Citation Guide
     APA (American Psychological Association) is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences. This resource, revised according to the 6th edition, second printing of the APA manual, offers examples for the general format of APA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the reference page.
  • Citing Government Documents
    Government documents can be more difficult to cite properly than standard books and journals, due to the specific nature of some of the documents. This is a short bibliography of guides to citation format which are useful for the researcher using government documents.
