Editorial Reviews

Review

“Without doubt, for anyone interested in learning about research—what it is, where one goes to pursue it, how to do it, what it entails and means, why it is important (now more so than ever before)—A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers is the place to begin. It will likely show people new to the field a way forward and offer experienced researchers the means to test established modes of operation. This book will not fail you, today or tomorrow, at home or in the library. Look for it at a bookstore near you or online.”
-- Thomas R. Claire ― Publishing Research Quarterly

“Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations continues a tradition of providing one of the best interpretations of The Chicago Manual of Style for higher education students and researchers in this ninth edition. The writing style is clear and easy to read, with examples illustrating proper formatting of items.”
-- Cynthia Goode ― American Reference Books Annual

"A mainstay in high-school and college libraries."
-- Praise for a previous edition ― Booklist

“This definitive handbook supplies information on about everything any student or teacher may desire to know concerning paper writing.”
-- Praise for a previous edition ― Quill and Scroll

“Kate L. Turabian was our trusted guide and mentor, the absolute authority, the one who knew all there was to know about the strange world of proper term papers. . . . To write a term paper without a well-worn copy of Turabian handy was unthinkable. Our writing on term papers might be weak, our research haphazard, our insights sophomoric, but, thanks to Kate L. Turabian, our footnotes could always be absolutely flawless.”
-- Praise for a previous edition ― Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Indispensable. . . . Turabian is everything a student researcher might need save a grammar guide and training in specific research methods. . . . When you consider the sheer wealth of material contained or cited in Turabian, its US $18.00 paperback and eBook list price is an absolute steal."
-- Steven E. Gump ― Journal of Scholarly Publishing Published On: 2019-10-01

5.0 out of 5 stars Our norm for writing
By Emmer Chacon on January 6, 2020
A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Ninth Edition: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers has been selected as the norm for theses and dissertation writers in our School. I have been serving as professor in schools of theology for over tweenty-two years and either this book or an adpatation of it has been used during all these years. It is great having the book in kindle format as my continual insternational movings have not allowed me to carry books in hard copy. I love books in hard copy but my circunstances have force me to shift into digital. Additionally, I travel a lot teaching in different countries and having it in digital format is a great advantage. My grateful thanks to the programmers and engenieers who made it possible for us to see the actual page in the digital formar of Kindle. That is a great advantage I will not get tired of giving thanks to those guys, so, thanks a lot, endeed!
