Turabian Citation Style Guide 9th Edition: C. Pamphlets, Brochures, & Reports

This guide will help you cite sources in the Turabian/Chicago Style.

About Citing Other Items

For each type of source in this guide, the general form and specific examples will be provided for both the Notes-Bibliography and the Author-Date style options of Turabian.

This information and several of the examples were drawn from A manual for writers of research papers, theses, and dissertations (9th edition). Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.

For further information, please ask your instructor or refer to the Turabian manual.

Pamphlets, Brochures, & Reports

For Notes-Bibliography style, cite pamphlets, reports, brochures, or other freestanding publications using the book format. Give as much information as you can to clearly identify the document. Unless critical to your argument, these sources should only be cited in the notes and not in the bibliography section. Include access date and URL for items found online (p. 191).


For Author-Date style, cite pamphlets, reports, brochures, and other freestanding publications like a book and include access and URL if applicable (p. 255).
