What are the differences between the Chicago style and MLA style of writing?

The MLA and the Chicago citation and writing styles are the most commonly used styles for writing and submitting college research papers. These two styles are mostly favored because of the proper citation they provide and commonly used to create papers on the subjects of history and humanities.

  • While the Chicago style is used for History subjects, MLA style is mostly used for English subjects.

  • There will be a title page in the Chicago style of writing where you have the information like the title of the paper, the name of the student, the subject or course code and the name of the professor, and the submission date of the paper. MLA style does not require a title page. They have that information on the left-hand side corner of the first page.
