The Chicago style includes two different systems: (1) notes and bibliography and (2) author-date.

The notes and bibliography style is mostly used in the humanities, for example literature and history. The notes and bibliography system presents bibliographic information in notes and a bibliography.

The author-date system is mostly used in the natural, and social sciences. In this system, sources are briefly cited in the text in parentheses by the author’s last name and date of publication. The short citations are amplified in a list of references, where full bibliographic information is provided.

The most commonly used version of Chicago in UCN studies is the author-date system.
