Footnotes page must remain in their original language.
In the System of Chicago Style Citation Latin phrases (op. cit., Id.; Idem.; Ibid., Ibid., Loc. Cit., Art. Cit.), are not used because they may refer to a note placed many pages before, which can be confusing and sometimes difficult for the reader to find. In lieu thereof, for subsequent footnotes from the same source, it includes only the last name, a shortened version of the title of the source and the page (s) consulted (s).
For example, a subsequent note:
Eric Bronner, A Rumor about the Jews. Antisemitism, Conspiracy, and the Protocols of Zion (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2003), 15.
It would be:
Bronner, A Rumor about the Jews, 37 - 54.
Some titles of the sources will be short enough so that the subsequent footnotes do not need abbreviations.
For example, a subsequent note:
Walter Lee Brown, A Life of Albert Pike (Arkansas: University of Arkansas Press, 1997), 49 - 51.
It would be:
Lee Brown, A Life of Albert Pike, 123.
The square brackets () are used in the footnotes if it indicates a translation of a passage from a source written in a language different than the language in which it was originally written. In these cases, it must add [my translation] at the end of the reference, just before the end point. Square brackets are also used in the footnotes to indicate who emphasizes a phrase or a word. Also, quotes or Saxon ("") in the part of the footnote can be used to be emphasize, as long as the footnote before the end point is inserted [emphasis added]. This warns the reader that emphasis was added onto the quotation.
References to publications in Spanish only use uppercase in the first letter of the title. All the words in the titles of publications in English are capitalized except for prepositions, articles, and coordinating conjunctions.
