What is the difference between Turabian and Chicago and? The primary difference is that Turabian is shorter and contains fewer instructions, and that it does not contain information about publication. The Chicago Manual of Style is designed for professionals in the field who are publishing, and has a great deal of instruction on formatting and many other things. Turabian is a pared-down version designed for students writing research papers and is a style of writing and formatting that is created and updated by Kate Turbian. It is adapted from the University of Chicago's 'Chicago' style of citation and is simplified for students and researchers.
