Using the Turabian Manual

When you are not sure how to format your citation, the first thing you want to do is identify what kind of source you’re citing.

Look at Chapters 16 and 17 in the Turabian Manual for Notes-Bibliography style, and Chapters 18 and 19 for Author-Date style. The table of contents will give you a good overview of the types of sources covered.

If you can’t find an example for the exact type of source, remember that the purpose of citation is to allow readers to find and use your sources. Choose the closest example in the Turabian Manual and follow that format. You may need to combine different parts of multiple formats. Make sure to be consistent.

Logos

To cite information found in Logos Bible Software, you must first identify what book or other resource is supplying the information. From there, follow the general Turabian rules for citing that type of source. At the end of the citation, add the name of the bible software.

Example:

Footnote
1. John S. Feinberg, Paul D. Feinberg and Aldous Huxley, Ethics for a Brave New World (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Books, 1993), 3, Logos Bible Software.
