Turabian (9th edition) - Essentially the same as Chicago Style

The standard manual for Turabian Style is
Turabian, Kate L.  A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Ninth Edition (2018).

Note that there are actually two Turabian styles:

  • Author-Date (also described as Reference List) - Uses short form citations in text rather than footnotes or endnotes; bibliographic citations have unique format features.
  • Notes (also described as Humanities or Bibliography) - Uses footnotes or endnotes; bibliographic citations have unique format features.
