This subject fails WP:GNG for lack of coverage substantially about him by multiple independent reliable sources, at least on which to base an encyclopedic biography. He also fails WP:CREATIVE (no indication of any significant impact in any field — upon research, few if any reliable reviews indicating anything about his work), and his career does not begin approach WP:ACADEMIC qualifications. Regarding WP:ANYBIO, the awards he has won seem to be reported only by the awarding group and Turner himself (if not significant enough for third party mention, then a prize probably isn't actually very significant); his supposed nominations for a Nobel prize have also yet to be shown in reliable third party sources (it's either Turner or an associated party). In full disclosure, this is one version that certain editors seem to prefer: lots of spammy external links, cites to Amazon, cites to press pages by the university with which he is affiliated, and wholly unsupported prose that could be politely described as promotional. As of nomination, the last WP:BLP- and WP:RS-compliant version is current. JFHJr () 23:40, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
