Clio's Psyche mostly follows the standards and style presented in Turabian. Clear, non-technical language is encouraged and notes are normally discouraged. When present notes should begin as full citations in parentheses within the text and then be followed by the author's last name, the italicized title, and the page number. Refer to recent issues of Clio's Psyche to determine any variations in style.
