Updated for the Eighth Edition
The article now reflects changes made in the eighth edition. A description of the structure and content of the manual has also been included.
8th edition should really be the version discussed here. There are also other style manuals that are based on Turabian, such as The SBL Handbook of Style, which finally revised its manual (after 15 years) in Nov. 2014. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eshelley509 (talk • contribs) 13:04, 11 March 2015 (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.
Quibble on title
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? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 09:06, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
