About this guide

This page provides resources to assist with citing and referencing sources in Chicago Manual of Style 16th ed. (Author-Date format).

This is the referencing style which the UWI thesis guide states should be used by students in the Faculty of Food and Agriculture and Faculty of Science and Technology (except for the students in the Department of Chemistry).

Note as well that the Occupational Environmental Safety and Health (OESH) students, though in the Department of Chemistry, use the Chicago Manual of Style 16th ed. Author-Date Format.
