Chicago style (notes and bibliography system) is frequently used in the Arts and Humanities, as its use of footnotes/endnotes in addition a bibliography allows the writer to provide precise source origins and present additional commentary.
The basic format consists of a number that is assigned to a particular part of the text, and a footnote with the corresponding number appears at the bottom of the same page, listing the source of the fact/opinion presented in the text. At the end of the paper, there is a bibliography (in alphabetical order by author's family name) detailing all the sources that have been cited in the paper, along with other works that were consulted but not directly cited.
