عنوان مقاله [English]
Many academic works are publishing every year in Iran, but they seldom use a single citation system. In other words, researchers and authors, according to their academic backgrounds and educations, use some different Manual of Style. This article suggests a standard and valid Manual, i.e. The Chicago Manual of Style, for resolving this problem. Dehkordi makes a review the system of gathering of data and citation from Iranian classic text to contemporary one. Then he introduces the Chicago Manual of Style with some examples (in Persian and English) and finally, according to Persian language potentiality, he gives some comments and suggestions to Iranian researchers who wish to use the Chicago Manual of Style.
