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 (Reference List) (Information on the Style Guide:



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



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.
