Citation rules

CUYO, Anuario de Filosofía argentina y americana, has adopted the concise form within the Chicago Citation Style (author-date form.) It consists of two parts: the first one is the abbreviated quote between parentheses in the text and the second one, is a list of references at the end of the work. In case of any doubt, you can contact us by sending an email to cuyoanuario@gmail.com or directly on the website of Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition, www.chicagomanualofstyle.org.
The main criterion of this standard is to provide sufficient information to guide the reader to the sources, being published or not, printed or electronic, and correctly identify the authors cited.

Guidelines and examples for the preparation of notes and references
The explanatory notes that accompany the articles will be numbered and will appear in a footnote.
The references will appear embedded in the text using parentheses and will contain: the name of the author, first name initial, year of publication and the precise location within the work, for example page of the quote or first and last page of quotation. If the whole work is quoted indicate no pages. This is a shortened form of citation. The full details of each work must be on a list of references arranged alphabetically at the end of the article.

Examples of citation in the text

 Book:                                                                                          (Zea, L. 1988, 36-37).

If two authors share the same family name and first name they will be distinguished by adding the initial of the second name or the full family name: e.g.:
