As opportunities for publishing have grown dramatically in an era of electronic publication and distribution, the guiding principles for The Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition PDF have been twofold: to recognize the continuing evolution in the way authors, editors, and publishers do their work, on the one hand, and to maintain a focus on those aspects of the process that are independent of the medium of publication, on the other. In service of the former principle, this edition assumes that all publishers might benefit from anextended discussion of the organizational and proofreading requirements of electronic publications.
In Chicago Manual of Style 16th Edition more attention has been given to the role of software for manuscript editors—for example, with the addition of a manuscript cleanup checklist intended to benefit authors and editors alike. Complementing chapters 1 and 2 is an overview of production technologies and in particular the role of electronic markup in a publishing workflow. Coverage of copyright and permissions (chapter 4) includes new information on fair use and electronic rights, including a discussion of the NIH Public Access Policy for journal articles, and the treatment of biasfree language in chapter 5 has been significantly expanded. The chapters on documentation (14 and15) offer updated information on citing electronic sources, including many more examples, and an updated glossary (appendix B) includes more terms related to electronic publishing. Also new to this edition is an introduction to Unicode (in chapter 11), a widely adopted computing standard that defines many of the letters and symbols required by the world’s writing systems.
This edition marks an evolution of more than forty years, starting with the landmark twelfth edition, published in 1969.
