We’re in the process of updating the documentation for Zotero 5.0. Some documentation may be outdated in the meantime. Thanks for your understanding.

I need to use Chicago style. Which of the three versions that come with Zotero should I use?

Zotero ships with three variants of the Chicago style (formatted examples of each style are shown below). The author-date format is most popular in the physical, natural, and social sciences, whereas researchers in literary, historical, and artistic fields mostly use note-based styles. For the note-based variants, the notes can either be self-explanatory and come with or without a bibliography (full note), or serve as a reference to a bibliographic entry (note).

  • Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (author-date)
    • in-text citation: (Adams 2002, 12)
    • bibliographic entry: Adams, Douglas. 2002. The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. New York: Del Rey.
  • Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (full note)
    • note: Douglas Adams, The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (New York: Del Rey, 2002), 12.
    • bibliographic entry: Adams, Douglas. The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. New York: Del Rey, 2002.
  • Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (note)
    • note: Adams, The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, 12.
    • bibliographic entry: Adams, Douglas. The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. New York: Del Rey, 2002.
