ABOUT TURABIAN STYLE

There are two common forms of citation in the Turabian style

  • bibliography-style (used mainly in humanities and some social sciences)
  • reference list style (used in most social sciences and natual and physical science)

The following are examples for the bibliography-style. This style requires footnotes (or endnotes) and a bibliography. The first time a source appears in a footnote, the full citation is given. The second and subsequent times that source is listed only the author's last name, an abbreviated title and the page number need to be included.
