Citation Norms


The Estudios journal has adopted the concise form within the Chicago Manual of Style (author-date), composed of two parts:  the first is a brief citation between parentheses in the text, and the second is a list of references at the end of the work.
The first part has been slightly adapted to the needs of this journal by adding the first letter of the author's first name. The second part, the list of references included at the end of each work, strictly adjusts to the Chicago Norm. If a case should present itself beyond these examples you may consult us at: normas@revistaestudios.com.ar or directly at our web site of Chicago Manual of Style 15th edition, www.chicagomanualofstyle.org.
The main criterion of this norm is to provide sufficient information to guide the reader towards the sources used, be they published or not, printed or electronically presented, and to individualize correctly the cited authors.
Rules and examples to elaborate notes and bibliographical references
Explanatory notes joined to articles must run sequentially and placed at the foot of the page.
Bibliographical citations must be inserted in the text with parentheses including: author's family name, initial of first name, year of publication, and precise location in the work; e.g.: cited page number or first page and end of citation, if the whole work is cited the page numbers need not be indicated. This is the brief citation norm. The complete data of each work should appear in a bibliographical reference list ordered alphabetically at the end of the article.

Examples of citation in the text

Book: (Arendt, H. 1999, 35).
Article or chapter in a book: (Ricoeur, P. 1991, 50).
Article in a serial publication or journal: (Paladines, C. 2007, 128).
Electronic document: (Norambuena, C. 2008).

If two works by the same author exist in the same year, they will be listed chronologically assigning to each a correlative alphabetical letter next to the year: e.g.: (Norambuena, C. 2008a), (Norambuena, C. 2008b).

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.: (Montiel, A. 1998), (Montiel, A. Abel 1998).

If homonyms persist, a clarifying note will be included.

A list of references in alphabetical order should figure at the end of the article. Works by the same author will be ordered chronologically.

The following list shows some of the most common examples:
