### Chicago Manual Style Papers

I have tried very had, and cannot for the life of me find a single working example of a Chicago formatted paper anywhere on the internet. I read through most of the documentation for biblatex-chicago, and still don't understand how to actually implement the format... I realize that most people don't try to write history papers with Latex but I'm determined to try.

What I am most desperate to find is an example .tex document containing all of the code neccessary to format just the bibliography of a Chicago style paper (without the brackets and indexing information that most of the default bibtex citation formats include) and the corresponding .bib file.

I am seriously annoyed at this problem right now, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi professorbell,

Welcome to the LaTeX community!

I don't have many experiences with it and I don't know the Chicago Manual Style, but these are the packages I found with a quick search:

All of these solutions seem to offer possibilities for customization, further citation commands for other appearances etc.

Regards
Clemens

First, Thankyou!

Second, I had found most of these before, but they didn't seem to order citations quite right. I'll take your advice and try to customize the one that comes closest (probably achicago).

Third, I'd still like to find somebody who has written a Chicago style paper with latex, but if such a person doesn't stumble across this thread in a couple of days, I'll mark your post as the answer.

Again, Thankyou!!

For reference, here is a simple approximation of a Chicago Style paper done in \LaTeX:

Paper-Nikitenko.tex

bibfile.bib
