Note: Chicago Style/Turabian

Chicago Style is also referred to as "Turabian," which is a simplified version of Chicago Style.

"Kate L. Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations is the student version of The Chicago Manual of Style, aimed at high school and college students who are writing papers, theses, and dissertations that are not intended for publication. (The Chicago Manual of Style is aimed at professional scholars and publishers.) The two books are compatible; both are official Chicago style."

The two styles are nearly identical.
