For the 15th Time, Look It Up: 'The Chicago Manual of Style' Enters the 21st Century

“The chief innovation of the new edition has been to thread coverage of electronic publishing throughout the Manual, to address ‘all of the changes in the way people now work with words,’ says Anita Samen, the 15th edition’s chief manuscript editor. People wonder, she says, ‘what is a publication anymore? And, what is a page?’ Previous editions dealt primarily with the traditional book. The new edition also takes on journals, electronic publications, online multimedia, informally published material, and even corporate reports, publicity material, and the like.” —For the 15th Time, Look It Up: ‘The Chicago Manual of Style’ Enters the 21st Century (Chronicle)
