Citing Sources: Turabian Style

A guide to citing sources: when to cite and what documentation format to use

Turabian Style

In the most recent version of "Turabian," the editors closely follow the Chicago Manual of Style, having two basic systems for documentation of sources. The notes-bibliography style (NB), also known as the bibliography style, is used most commonly by writers in literature, history and the arts. The parenthetical citations-reference list style, also known as reference list style, is used more often in the physical, natural, and social sciences.

Examples of Turabian Format

Examples are based on the 2014 edition of Turabian's A Manual for Writers. Because the Notes-Bibliography (NB) style has been historically associated with the Turabian style, only examples of the NB style are included.
