Description

  • University of Chicago Press
  • A little more than seventy-five years ago, Kate L. Turabian drafted a set of guidelines to help students understand how
    to write, cite, and formally submit research writing. Seven editions and more than nine million copies later, the name
    Turabian has become synonymous with best practices in research writing and style. Her Manual for Writers continues to be
    the gold standard for generations of college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines. Now in its
    eighth edition, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations has been fully revised to meet the
    needs of today’s writers and researchers.

    The Manual retains its familiar three-part structure, beginning with an overview of the steps in the research and
    writing process, including formulating questions, reading critically, building arguments, and revising drafts. Part II
    provides an overview of citation practices with detailed information on the two main scholarly citation styles
    (notes-bibliography and author-date), an array of source types with contemporary examples, and detailed guidance on
    citing online resources.

    The final section treats all matters of editorial style, with advice on punctuation, capitalization, spelling,
    abbreviations, table formatting, and the use of quotations. Style and citation recommendations have been revised
    throughout to reflect the sixteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. With an appendix on paper format and
    submission that has been vetted by dissertation officials from across the country and a bibliography with the most
    up-to-date listing of critical resources available, A Manual for Writers remains the essential resource for students and
    their teachers.
