According to section 14.233 of the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, material (i.e. entries) from an online reference source, such as the Encyclopedia Britannica Online, should be cited as a eletronic source.

The basic format for an online encyclopedia entry is:

Title of reference work [in italics], s.v. "Title of entry," Date accessed, Name of Publisher or DOI #

Note: s.v. stands for sub verbo, under the word.



1. Encyclopedia of Gender and Society, s.v. “Access to Justice,” accessed April 8, 2016,
