Phillips Style Guide: PHILLIPS STYLE

PHILLIPS STYLE INFORMATION

  • The Phillips Style Guide contains citation examples for types of sources commonly used in Phillips Seminary coursework.
  • The Phillips Style Guide is adapted from A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers, 9th edition (commonly referred to as Turabian) and The SBL Handbook of Style, 2nd edition.
  • Turabian is adapted from The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition. Turabian guidelines and citation examples are geared specifically toward the student writer and researcher.
  • Turabian consists of two citation styles--notes-bibliography and author-date. Phillips Style requires use of notes-bibliography (see Turabian chapters 16 and 17).
  • When researching citation examples, start with the Phillips Style Guide. If you are unable to locate the citation example that matches your resource, consult Turabian (the Quick Guide quick or the book). And if Turabian doesn't have an example that matches your resource, then consult the Chicago Manual of Style Online.
  • If you still aren't sure you have the correct citation example, contact Katherine (see contact info below).

FOOTNOTES & BIBLIOGRAPHIES

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FOOTNOTE AND A BIBLIOGRAPHIC ENTRY?
  • Footnotes and bibliographic entries are indented differently.
  • The order of firstname lastname is different.
  • The punctuation is different—note placement of commas, periods, parentheses, colons.
  • Page number of cited text is included in footnote; page numbers of chapter that contains cited text are included in bib entry.
The examples below are for an article, essay, or chapter in an edited volume, long format footnote, short format footnote, and bibliography. See Phillips Style Guide, Section 2.3.
