The Chicago Manual of Style’s new edition: A discussion with Carol Saller

March 26, 2017 By Tim Fanning and Michael Moore, Online News Association USFSP Conferences

This week, the Chicago Manual of Style announced its new edition. The 17th edition will lower-cased internet, drop the hyphen from email, add guidelines for retracing a journal article and advise against the use of “ibid.” For those writers and editors working on 20-year-long research papers, this may create a bit of a problem when the 17th edition hits the shelves this September.

Carol Saller, editor of the Chicago Manual of Style Online’s Q&A, sat down with Online News Association USFSP’s Tim Fanning and Michael Moore Jr. to give a recap of her ACES session titled “What’s New at the Chicago Manual of Style.” Saller also talked about some “hate mail” she’s received in response to some of these changes.
