What is Chicago/Turabian Style

Chicago/Turabian style is used when writing papers for humanities classes.  It is known for the requirement that the writer must place citations at the bottom of a page or at the end of a paper.

Turabian style is named after its creator, Kate L. Turabian, who created it for the University of Chicago. Turabian is  commonly used for student papers such as theses and dissertations.  

Turabian and Chicago citation styles are almost identical. 

The Chicago Manual of Style is currently in its 17th edition, and Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations is in its 8th edition.
