The Chicago Manual of Style is a publication of The University of Chicago Press (UCP). Chicago style is commonly used in the social sciences.
The UCP also publishes a student version of the guide called A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations. This is often called the "Turabian" guide after its original author, Kate L. Turabian.
Copies of the Manual can be borrowed from the National University Library. If you live outside of San Diego, you can request that a copy be delivered to your home address or nearest campus using our Books Direct service.
