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 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.
