Turabian 9 Author-Date Style


This guide exists to help Lincoln Christian University students utilize A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers, 9th edition, commonly known as Turabian, to write research papers using the Author-Date style of citations.  This guide does not take the place of owning and referencing a complete copy of this manual.  Instead, this guide serves to provide specific guidelines adopted or suggested by Lincoln Christian University for our campus.

Please note that the examples listed here do not conform to the spacing guidelines found in Turabian due to the variations in the size of computer and device screens. See the Formatting page for an exact example.

For information on using the Turabian Notes-Bibliography style, please see the guide listed below.

For questions not answered here, please contact the library via email ( or check with the course professor.
