Turabian Style

In 1937, Kate L. Turabian wrote a book based on the The Chicago Manual of Style guidelines. The guidelines in her A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, are commonly referred to as "Turabian Style."

If your instructor requires you to use Chicago Style please see our separate guide as there are significant differences between the two styles.

Within Turabian, there are 2 different citation style options. You may use the notes-bibliography style (which uses footnotes or endnotes), or the author-date style. If you are not sure which of these two styles to use for your paper, please consult your instructor.
