Turabian’s Manual for Writers—Announcing a New Edition

Now fully aligned with the new, seventeenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style

When we released the new edition of The Chicago Manual of Style, one of the most frequent questions we received was, “So when is the next Turabian arriving?” We’re pleased to announce that a new edition is finally here.

When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way.

With that in mind, this new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission.

The ninth edition includes

  • enhanced guidance on using digital materials and citing online sources,
  • practical advice for cultivating information literacy,
  • expanded instructions for formatting papers and submitting electronically, and
  • alignment with the seventeenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style.

What Is #ChicagoStyle?

Chicago style is named for The Chicago Manual of Style, a reference book for writers and editors first published by the University of Chicago Press in 1906 and now in its 17th edition.

In the 1930s, the Press published Kate Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, often called simply “Turabian,” and now in its 9th edition.

Both books are official sources for Chicago style and are internationally recognized for their authority.
