What is Turabian Style?

Turabian is the common name given to the style recommendations based on the Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations by Kate L. Turabian. It is a set of rules for writing student papers and providing references to the sources used.

Turabian Style is much alike Chicago Style but is adapted to the needs of students and has its own specific traits.

To date, the 9th edition is the latest edition of Turabian Style.

How is Turabian Style specific?

Just like Chicago Style, Turabian assumes the existence of two systems of citations, namely the notes and bibliography (also referred to as full note) and the author-date variations.

The notes and bibliography system requires providing a list of references in the end of your paper and footnotes to quote them in the text of your paper, while the author-date system means that in-text citations with the names of the authors and the year of publication are used instead of the footnotes.

Just as in Chicago Style, the two systems of Turabian have many nuances that may lead you into a pitfall. For example, there are different types of footnotes (full and short) with different rules being applied to each of such types, there are complex rules for citing different types of sources, and so on.

How is Grafiati different from other citation generators (Zotero, Mendeley, Citethisforme, etc.)?

The users of services such as Zotero, Mendeley, Citethisforme, etc. might have noticed that these services generate almost the same references and citations which often contain some strange elements or are incomplete. This is due to the fact that the abovementioned websites and programs implement the same faulty open-source code and are completely dependent on it.

Grafiati adopts a totally different approach and offers custom-tailored service to our customers. As a result, we not only produce the most correct Turabian references and references in any other citation style, but also provide our users with multiple handy tools to make your work easy and comfortable.
