Calvin Theological Seminary papers and theses are academic scholarly works that need to include proper citation of sources. CTS papers are normally written using the Turabian citation style (which is basically the same as the Chicago style, but modified slightly for students) in Kate L. Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 8th ed.(Chicago, 2013) It presents two basic documentation systems:
Papers written for biblical studies courses should follow the SBL Handbook of Style for Biblical Studies and Related Disciplines (this generally follows Turabian/Chicago, with some significant differences). You can use the links below for a quick guide to the SBL format, or find the full handbook in the library.
