    DescriptionFor close to 60 years, Kate L. Turabian's "Manual for Writers" has offered detailed guidance to authors of research papers - term papers, theses and dissertations. Now the editors of "The Chicago Manual of Style" have revised Turabian's work to bring the details of style into conformity with the 14th edition of "The Chicago Manual". This edition of Turabian also reflects the way students work today, taking into account the role of personal computers in the preparation and presentation of their papers. The familiar organization of this popular book remains largely unchanged. Chapter one describes the parts of a long formal paper. Chapters two-five introduce the mechanics of writing style, from abbreviations to quotations. Chapters six and seven show how to prepare and refer to tables and illustrations. The section on documentation, chapters eight-twelve, describes two of the most commonly used systems of citation; these chapters provide many examples including guidance on how to cite electronic documents. Chapter 13, on manuscript preparation, shows how to take advantage of word processing software to present the elements of a paper clearly and effectively. Chapter 14 offers more than 24 sample pages illustrating ways of formatting some of the complex features found in many research papers.
