Chicago Manual of Style

Utah Historical Review publishes under the Chicago Manual of Style.

The Chicago Manual of Style (CMS) is the prevailing style used for historical journals in the United States and is used by some social science journals as well. The CMS also serves as a foundation for the style of the American Anthropological AssociationDue to this wide-spread applicability, we suggest that any students who are interested in taking on careers in history or social sciences in the United States familiarize themselves with the Chicago Manual of Style early in their academic careers.

Articles submitted to the Utah Historical Review are required to comply with the CMS in all aspects of grammar, formatting, punctuation, and reference citation.  Failure to comply with the style guide will result in ineligibility for publication.

It should be noted that while many people will tell you that Kate L. Turabian’s, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations is the same as the Chicago Manual of Style, it is not.  The Turabian style is aimed at college-preparation research papers, not works of professional publication.
