The University of Chicago Press has just released its 17th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. The changes offered in this new edition include updated guidelines for the citation of electronic information (including citations of social media, private messages, apps, DOIs, and e-books), expanded discussions of English grammar and syntax, and revised recommendations for the use of gender-neutral and bias-free terminology. Like its predecessors, the 17th edition promises to be an invaluable resource for scholars across disciplines.
Since the SBLHS 2 is based on the Chicago Manual of Style, this new edition will no doubt prompt changes to our own style. We will announce relevant changes on this blog in the coming months. In the meantime, please feel free to send us your questions related to this new edition and how it affects our style.
