What is Chicago Notes & Bibliography Style?

Chicago is a documentation style that has been published by the Chicago University Press since 1906.The Notes and Bibliography (NB) style is preferred by many in humanities disciplines, including history, literature, and the arts, as well as some political science publications. Citations are provided in footnotes or endnotes and are usually accompanied by a bibliography. 

"Turabian" style, widely used for decades by students, is essentially a simplified version of the Chicago Style.
