Citing Sources in Chicago/Turabian Style: Electronic Sources

How to cite sources using Chicago/Turabian style.

Electronic Resources

  • Give the DOI when it is available instead of a URL. If no DOI is available, list the URL as a substitute. [14.6]
  • URL's may change and the reader should have enough information to find the source through an Internet search.
  • Where material is time sensitive or likely to be edited and changed, give the access date in parentheses in the bibliography.
  • If page numbers are not available, list section or chapter headings as substitutes.
  • For items cited directly from the internet, access dates are not required unless no date of publication can be determined from the source [14.7]
  • In MS Word: Right click on the URL and select Remove Hyperlink to eliminate the underscore and active link from your document.
  • For short form notes see examples from the Periodicals (print) page.
