HPS100 History and Philosophy of Science


For fall 2023, HPS100 is requiring the Chicago Author-Date style.

See the Author-Date Style Sample Citations page from the Chicago Manual of Style Online (17th ed.) which you can navigate within to confirm all elements of the Chicago Author-Date style.

Please take advantage of the citation feature built into LibrarySearch and most of the databases U of T Library provides access to.

Citation Management tools:

There are many tools you can use to keep track of potential sources that you may use in a list of works cited/bibliography for an assignment.

See this page for general information on many tools such as Zotero, Mendeley and Refworks +

Refworks is a citation management tool available at no charge to students at the University of Toronto.
The UTL catalogue and many databases will export directly to Refworks. It can help keep track of your sources and can help create your bibliography (list of works cited) with a few clicks.
Please keep in mind that automatic citation generation tools do occasionally make mistakes, so you should carefully check any bibliography generated by a citation tool/application (check that all nouns that should start with a capital letters have actually been capitalized, etc.)
