What is the difference between the MLA and the Chicago writing style?
I have to write a paper in the to me unfamiliar Chicago style. We always used MLA. What is the difference and where can I find guidelines on how to write 'Chicago'?
The MLA style is geared towards the liberal arts and humanities. The Chicago style is a general guide suited to all subjects. It is the style the Chicago Tribune uses, and it is also called the Turabian.
You can buy it online and look at the quick guide.
The Chicago (Turabian) Style of writing is almost identical to MLA Style.
Both are generally considered interchangable for Humanities papers.
The main caution from my experience is not to mix them up in the same paper.
You can find many good guides to their usage and differences online.
For a more detailed description of Chicago Style I would recommend "A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses and Dissertations" by Kate Turabian. It is in at least it's 7th Edition, and if you are going to write lots of papers will come in handy to buy from Amazon, for one or two uses, your local or school library may have a copy.
I looked online, but it only talked about how to do the Citations different. But there has to be more to it.
