Chicago Manual of Style: An Introduction

21st May 2014

For those of you in the humanities, particularly in the fields of history and anthropology, you will eventually become an expert in citing sources according to the Chicago Manual of Style (CMS).

The people at Dissertation Editor are knowledgeable in several areas of study. I have found their services to be most valuable and helpful throughout my dissertation journey. APA editing, punctuation, and sometimes appropriate grammar are not my strongest areas. While using the services of DE I discovered that I could just write my dissertation and not have to worry about the editing process as much as I would without them. DE made the dissertation journey tolerable. I will continue to use their services until my journey is complete.
