Which Chicago?

Regarding the Chicago style, there are two different versions.  

  • Notes-Bibliography (NB) is used by those in the humanities fields: literature, arts, history.  Chicago NB uses footnotes or endnotes within the text, and a bibliography of sources.
  • Author-Date (AD) is preferred by those in the social sciences and sciences.  Chicago AD uses in-text or parenthetical citations (the author of the source, the date) and a reference list, or list of sources.
