Citation Style Guide for CSW Publications

Effective July 1, 2020, CSW publications will adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS).

For blog posts and policy briefs, we ask that you use the CMS notes-bibliography system (link to full guide) with endnotes (not footnotes). Please also review the Citation Quick Guide.

For policy briefs, please use endnotes as bibliography (as opposed to endnotes and a bibliography; see samples below).

For papers submitted to conferences, eScholarship, etc., you may choose between the notes-bibliography system and the author-date system.

For all publications, please note that CMS discourages the use of ibid. in favor of shortened citations (see “short form” samples below).

If you have any unanswered questions after consulting the CMS, please contact the CSW Program and Research Developer.
