As of their 16th and 8th editions, Chicago and Turabian style guides include the same rules for citations and bibliographies. The primary difference is the Turabian style is a condensed version of the full Chicago Manual of Style created for student writers.
The following areas of study often use Chicago or Turabian citation style: history, humanities, religion, peace, justice & conflict studies, and social and natural sciences.
The final authority for these styles are the books listed below. The final authority for the bibliographic form used in your paper is your professor.
In a printed work, if a URL or DOI has to be broken at the end of a line, the break should be made after a colon or a double slash (//); before a single slash(/), a tilde (~), a period, a comma, a hyphen, an underline (_), a question mark, a number sign, or a percent symbol; or before or after an equals sign or an ampersand....A hyphen should never be added to a URL or DOI to denote a line break, nor should a hyphen that is part of a URL or DOI appear at the end of a line.
There are two common forms of citation for these styles:
1. Chicago Notes-Bibliography / Bibliography Style (used mainly in humanities and some social sciences)
This style requires footnotes (or endnotes) and a bibliography. The first time a source appears in a footnote, the full citation is given. The second and subsequent times that source is listed only the author's last name, an abbreviated title and the page number need to be included.
2. Chicago Author-Date / Reference List Style (used in most social sciences and natural and physical science)
This style uses parenthetical citation as sources come up in the text, but only lists the full source in the references list at the end of the paper.
