About the Book

This book simplifies the Turabian writing style format. It functions as a writer’s guide to A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (9th edition). It is simple to use and far less time consuming. Thus, the title: Turabian: The Easy Way! Navigating through the cumbersome and complicated official guide is no longer required!

Technology has changed the way in which research is conducted. Turabian: The Easy Way! has been updated to reflect these changes. Digital research is much more readily used and acceptable today, and properly citing sources extracted from this type of research may present challenges. As such, our book now includes detailed guidelines for citing sources from digital environments.

With more than 45 years of teaching experience, the authors of this book have realized that there has been confusion with writing in accordance to the official Turabian guidelines. Those familiar with the writing style realize the potential anxiety that prevails when required to use this format. The primary focus of any research paper should be the content. However, most academic institutions and journal publications require a manuscript that is written in a specific writing style in addition to containing well written content.

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.

Education is one of the best investments you will ever make…and our books maximize that investment! (Houghton & Houghton)
