A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Eighth Edition: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers (Chicago Guides to Writing, Editing, and Publishing)

Product Description

University of Chicago Press

Imported from USA

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.
