Fonts: CMOS does not specify a particular font. We suggest you use a readable serif font, like Times New Roman, 12 pt.
All title page elements will be centered. Go with size 12 Times New Roman font. There is no page number on the title page!
About a third of the way down the page, write your paper title.
Go down about another third and write:
In-text citations will use footnotes, not parentheses (see formatting examples on the other pages of this guide).
Otherwise, proceed with your normal paper-writing style: indent paragraphs, organize your ideas, use good grammar, and so on.
The paper will be double-spaced throughout -- everything should be consistent and match everything else, from title page through bibliography.
Each bibliographic entry will be single-spaced with a double-space in between each entry. Use the hanging indent.
For examples, please refer to the other sections of this guide (Articles, E-Books & Books, etc).
