Output Style Instructions


QuikBib strives for accuracy in all output styles. We recommend verifying that there are no new style instructions before submitting your paper. Always check your reference list for accuracy.


Turabian 7th Edition (Notes) (Information on the Style Guide:



There are two Turabian formats Reference List and Footnotes/Bibliography. The format used here is Footnotes/Bibliography.



If there is no author in a reference QuikBib will substitute the title as required by Turabian 6th. The first author name should be entered last name first followed by a comma, first name and middle name followed by a comma. All other author names should be entered First Middle Last followed by a comma with the last name followed by a period.



QuikBib applies the required sentence casing and as such cannot distinguish proper nouns. Carefully check your formatted papers for incorrect casing. Full title, no ending punctuation. QuikBib will apply any attributes required along with the required punctuation.


Periodical Title:

Use full journal names for the periodical.


Newspaper Title:

A headline or summary, rather than a formal article title, may be capitalized sentence style. Titles of regular departments in a magazine are capitalized headline style but not put in quotation marks.


Periodical Volume and Issue:

Journal citations with a volume and no issue, check for stray punctuation. The issue number maybe omitted if the pagination is continuous throughout the volume.


Newspaper/Magazine Publication Date:

Month or season if applicable. Weekly or monthly magazines, even if numbered by volume and issue, are usually cited by date only. The date is not enclosed in parentheses. Date should appear as follows: March 2000


Newspaper/Magazine Pages:

If you cite a specific passage in a note, include its page number. But you may omit the article's inclusive page numbers in a reference list entry, since newspaper articles often span many pages that include extraneous material or appear in different locations when different editions are printed.
