NEW TIU Style

  • TIU style is used by most of the programs at TEDS and TGS.
  • It is based on the Turabian/Chicago style.
  • Some programs use footnotes/bibliographies and some parenthetical references/reference lists. Check your program at the beginning of the style guide to be sure what style variation to use, or ask your professor if you are not sure.

Using pre-formatted headings

Make sure to use the pre-formatted headings available in the TIU template to ensure the proper formatting of your paper's headings.

Inserting paper into template

We recommend writing your paper in the template itself rather than inserting it into the template later.

However, if you have already written your paper in an unformatted document, follow these steps:

  • Turn on the Show/Hide feature to see the paragraph and section break marks.
  • Copy and paste from your paper into the template a section at a time, paying attention to the marks. Be careful not to copy certain marks, such as the page and section breaks.
