A little more than seventy-five years ago, Kate L. Turabian drafted a set of guidelines to help students understand how to write, cite, and formally submit research writing. Seven editions and more than nine million copies later, the name Turabian has become synonymous with best practices in research writing and style. Her “Manual for Writers” continues to be the gold standard for generations of college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.
Now in its eighth edition, “A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations” has been fully revised to meet the needs of today’s writers and researchers. The Manual retains its familiar three-part structure, beginning with an overview of the steps in the research and writing process, including formulating questions, reading critically, building arguments, and revising drafts. Part II provides an overview of citation practices with detailed information on the two main scholarly citation styles (notes-bibliography and author-date), an array of source types with contemporary examples, and detailed guidance on citing online resources. It offers authoritative guidance on all matters of style, updated to reflect “The Chicago Manual of Style”, sixteenth edition.
