for contributors

LÁPIZ uses a modified version of The Chicago Manual of Style (17th Edition) "Notes and Bibliography" system (not the "Author-Date" system). The only modification is that LAPES does not require a bibliography at the end of the text.


In this system, sources are cited in numbered footnotes (not endnotes). Each note corresponds to a raised (superscript) number in the text. The first time a work is cited, include a full note along with a page number, unless you are citing the entire book. All subsequent citations should follow the short note format. Below you will find examples of common types of cited works. For more details and examples, see chapter 14 of The Chicago Manual of Style or past issues of LÁPIZ
