The intent of this handbook is simply to supplement the official Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (8th edition) by Kate L. Turabian. It is not intended to supersede the manual, but to reduce its complexity and shed new light on existing material. This explains the title: Turabian: The Easy Way! The handbook is divided into five parts. Part one focuses on the mechanics of Turabian style writing; part two emphasizes planning, drafting, and revising a research document; part three describes punctuation and writing style; part four explains source citations; and part five provides a sample paper.
