How to cite

Turabian style

"Turabian style" refers to the formatting guidelines in A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations by Kate Turabian (available in print at Concordia Library). The manual is a basic introduction to formatting and the Chicago citation style for social sciences term papers.

Two forms of citation are permitted by Turabian: 1) footnotes with a bibliography, or 2) parenthetical references with a reference list at the end of the paper, known as author-date.
