The Turabian style is a citing and referencing system based on the Chicago style and named after Kate Turabian, from the University of Chicago, who authored a manual to guide students in citing and referencing when writing research papers. The print manual is available from all Monash libraries:
There are two forms of the Turabian style:
1. Notes - Bibliography Style: used in Fine Arts and commonly referred to as bibliography style. AHT1101 students use this form.
2. Author - Date: used in Design disciplines and so called because the author's name and date of publication are the critical elements for indentifying sources. In author-date style, you signal that you have used a source by placing a parenthetical citation (author, date, page number) next to your reference to that source.
These styles are essentially the same as those presented in the Chicago Manual of Style 16th ed.
