Help!! I know someone out there in Techwhirler Land can help me
(you've just gotta! I've already bragged how helpful you all are!
One of the software products that my company produces is a
bibliographic management database. This program is used by people
submitting papers in various fields and to various publications. We
support over a hundred bibliographic formats already (including
Vancouver, MLA, APA), but do not support Chicago or Turabian.
What I need to know is this:
What is the bibliographic format required when submitting a paper in
Chicago A, Chicago B and Turabian formats? I need to know what the
format is for journal references for both in-text and numeric
citations. If you do not know the answers, do you know where I can
look (for example, does the Chicago Manual of Style answer the
Chicago A/B questions)?
Thanks for your help! Please email me privately, since I don't want
to take up any additional bandwidth with the replies that I just know
are gonna be flooding in! <grin>
