There is no mention in The Chicago Manual of Style Online, 16th edition about a running head in a research paper.

There are chapter headings for books, but there are no running heads for research papers.

Here’s two samples paper using Chicago Style.  Here’s an example of an Author-Date Sample Paper and Notes-Bibliography Sample Paper.

Only page numbers are required in the header section on the research paper.

For more information about Chicago/Turabian Style, visit our Chicago Style guide or contact the Learning Center (UC Students) or Online Writing Center (COCE Students) for additional help.
