The following list contains examples of references formatted for interviews and personal communications.
The Chicago Manual of Style chapter numbers are included so that more information can be located easily in either the print or online manual. Use the numbers as a reference for the relevant sections in the print volume, or link straight through to the Chicago Manual of Style Online from this guide.
Authors known only by their given name (and not by any surname) are listed by that name. E.g. Augustine, Plato, John Paul II.
In a footnote, the author’s name is given in the normal order (first name first). In the short form of the citation, only the last name is given.
In a bibliography, where names are arranged alphabetically, the first (or only) author's name is inverted (last name first); other authors remain in normal order.
In a footnote (full and short forms), cite only the name of the first-listed author, followed by et al.
In a bibliography, with four or more authors, list all the authors. Word order and punctuation are the same as for the bibliography rule for two or three authors.
Titles of encompassing work (e.g. book, newspaper etc) should be in italics and use headline capitalisation.
"Chicago does not ... require access dates in its published citations of electronic sources unless no date of publication or revision can be determined from the source"
In footnote citations, only give the page numbers specific to the location of where you found the quote/idea.
In the bibliography, the range of pages should be cited. If no page numbers are available (eg some electronic formats) use the section heading or subheading etc., however this is not strictly required.
