While digital technologies have revolutionized the publishing world in the twenty-first century, one thing still remains true: "The Chicago Manual of Style" is the authoritative, trusted source that writers, editors, and publishers turn to for guidance. For the sixteenth edition, every aspect of coverage has been reconsidered to reflect how publishing professionals work today. Though processes may change, the "Manual" continues to offer the clear, well-considered style and usage advice it has for more than a century. The sixteenth edition offers expanded information on producing electronic publications, including Web-based content and e-books. An updated appendix on production and digital technology demystifies the process of electronic workflow and offers a primer on the use of XML markup, and a revised glossary includes a host of terms associated with electronic as well as print publishing. The Chicago system of documentation has been streamlined and adapted for a variety of online and digital sources. Figures and tables are updated throughout the book - including the return of the Manual's popular hyphenation table and new, comprehensive listings of Unicode numbers for special characters. With the wisdom of a hundred years of editorial practice and a wealth of industry expertise from both Chicago's staff and an advisory board of publishing professionals, "The Chicago Manual of Style", sixteenth edition, is an invaluable resource in this rapidly changing world. If you work with words - no matter what the delivery medium - this is the one reference you simply must have. What's new in the sixteenth edition? It includes: expanded coverage of electronic publications, including procedures for proofreading Web-based and other electronic documents; electronic editing checklist for editors and writers; expanded coverage of fair use and electronic rights; firm rules and definitive recommendations to help authors and editors make the best choices; an introduction to Unicode, the international computing standard for letters and symbols required by the world's languages, including tables with Unicode numbers; new and improved hyphenation guide; more references to organizations that publish their own guidelines and standards online; simplified overview of Chicago's system of documentation; additional guidelines for citing blogs, podcasts, and other electronic sources; updated advice on DOIs versus URLs, including more examples; thoroughly revised coverage of production processes, including an overview of electronic markup and XML; and expanded section on bias-free language. The Chicago Manual of Style Online: the indispensable reference for all who work with words is also available online through an annual subscription for individuals, groups, and institutions. Completely searchable and easy to use, the Web site will be updated with sixteenth edition content simultaneously with the release of the print edition.
