Despite my preferences, I have provided this style sheet because several major political science journals and most academic books still use footnotes (citations at the bottom of the page on which materials are fully referenced) or endnotes (with endnotes, full citation information is ed at the end of the paper) that conform to the Chicago Manual of Style.

In my classes, I ask that you not use endnotes because I often spot-check student citations, which is easier when bibliographic references are provided on the same page as the citation.

Sometimes, you will find that ideas have come from several works, in which case a single citation note should be used to denote the sources, which all will be listed in the endnote (normally, sources are listed either in order of importance to your argument or by date of publication).
