The Turabian citation style is typically used by scholars in fields such as the Humanities, Economics and Business, Education, Fine Arts and Music, History, Politics, Social Sciences, and Theology.
The 9th edition (2018) of Turabian's Manual for Writers is the most current edition in use, and features two different style formats: Author/Date and Notes/Bibliography.
The Notes/Bibliography or NB format is most often used for courses in literature, history and the arts.
The Author/Date or AD format is most often used in the social sciences.
Be sure to check with your course teachers and pick one style to use consistently throughout your paper.
