How do I cite a source with no author in Chicago style?
In a Chicago footnote citation, when the author of a source is unknown (as is often the case with websites), start the citation with the title in a full note. In short notes and bibliography entries, list the organization that published it as the author.
|Full note||1. “An Introduction to Research Methods,” Scribbr, accessed June 11, 2020, https://www.scribbr.com/category/methodology/.|
|Short note||2. Scribbr, “Research Methods.”|
|Bibliography||Scribbr. “An Introduction to Research Methods.” Accessed June 11, 2020. https://www.scribbr.com/category/methodology/.|
In Chicago author-date style, treat the organization as author in your in-text citations and reference list.
