Turabian style was developed by Kate Turabian at the University of Chicago to help students writing research papers. It is based on the Chicago style but omits some of the relevant publishing information. It has been used mainly for the writing of history papers but is now used for other disciplines. Turabian styles allows writers to use both endnotes as with MLA and footnotes. This choice may depend upon the discipline with the humanities favoring the use of notes/bibliography and the sciences (physical, natural, social) favoring the use of author/date (in-line citations).
