About the Book

Writing a research paper or an article for publication can be an arduous task. The primary focus of the document should be based on the content. However, most academic institutions and journal publications require not only a well written paper, but also a paper that is written in a specified writing format style.

Years of experience have proven that there are consistent questions and misunderstandings regarding Turabian writing style. This book has been developed to simplify the writing experience when using A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (8th edition). Students no longer have to navigate through the cumbersome and complicated official guide. This handbook is simple to use and far less time consuming. Thus, the title: Turabian: The Easy Way!

The book is divided into five parts. Part one focuses on the mechanics of Turabian style writing; part two emphasizes planning, drafting, and revising a research document; part three describes punctuation and writing style; part four explains source citations; and part five provides a sample paper.
