There is now an 8th edition. This article needs updating. Spicer5 (talk) 16:50, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

I moved Turabian to the actual title of the book. That is, I reversed the redirects. Although I often refer to it as "Turabian," it is not the official title, and the article should be under the official title. TuckerResearch (talk) 14:56, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

The first sentence seems a bit confusing or inaccurate to me. Surely "A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations" is NOT the popular name of a format. Wouldn't it be more accurate to say something like:

A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations is the source of the popular Turabian format. The book itself is also commonly referred to simply as the Turabian.

Right so, fixed a bit. TuckerResearch (talk) 02:32, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Just wanted to mention -- I've got a copy lying right here on the bed next to me, and the title is "A Manual for Writers of TERM Papers, Theses, and Dissertations." Perhaps it varies from printing to printing? 35.11.168.226 (talk) 09:06, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
