Research Assistance

The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, is the style type recommended and accepted by The University of the West Indies for theses and other scholarly writing in the Social Sciences.  The manual offers two options:

1 - Documentation 1 or Humanities Style, which makes use of footnotes/endnotes and a bibliography.

2 - Documentation 2 or Author-Date Style, which gives for in-text citations and a reference list/bibliography, the full bibliographic citation.

Scholars in International Relations often use Documentation – 1 or the humanities style. Examples of both are outlined in the documents below. Do note, however, that the Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.) is available in the Library for consultation. This is useful as it provides extensive guidelines on proper citation style for resources consulted.

See the style guide for documentation assistance:

Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition - Humanities Style.

Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition - Author-Date Style.
