Reference Style Guide

The Citations and Reference formatting style of Cadmus is broadly based on the Chicago Manual of Style. Two systems of documentation, whether footnotes or endnotes or both are allowed: footnotes for descriptive text and endnote for citing a source.

Please contact the Cadmus Editorial Office at editorialoffice@cadmusjournal.org if you have any questions regarding the reference formatting. You may also download a pdf copy of the Reference style Guide from here
