The Sixteenth Edition will be available in book form and as a subscription website. The same content from "The Chicago Manual of Style" will be in both versions.
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 on style and process. 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 a return to 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.

"Just like its revered print version, this resource is user-friendly and well organized online.... Those accustomed to the book form will appreciate the hyperlinks in the Table of Contents that allow users to go directly to a specific section. Priced to fit any budget." - Library Journal, four-star review"
