General rules

If you wish citing a chapter of an edited book (or one work from an anthology, etc.) instead of a whole book, use the following templates for references according to Chicago – notes and bibliography (17th ed.):

Reference in a bibliography:

Author. "Chapter Title." In Book Title, edited by Editor, pages. City: Publisher, year.

Full note:

Author, "Chapter Title," in Book Title, ed. Editor (City: Publisher, year), number of the cited page.

Short note:

Author, "Chapter Title," number of the cited page.

It is also worth noting that the book you are citing can itself be a part of a multivolume edition. If this is the case, include the title and number of the volume in your reference. We recommend using the generator of bibliographic references by Grafiati to automatically create correct references and notes in line with the requirements of the Chicago Manual of Style without any extra effort on your part.
