16 steps to the 16th ed.: A Sensitization Service of the IIR Library

When the good folks who produce the Chicago Manual of Style released the 16th edition of the Style Manual, we decided to email every single academic staff member  and research assistant every day for 16 days to alert them to the significant changes within the Manual. This is captured in the style changes handout, 16 steps to the 16th ed.

 Step 5. Use the shortened form of the publisher's name {CMS rule 14.139 and 14.140}

Global Environment Outlook: Latin America and the Caribbean.  Panama: UNEP, 2010.

Step 6. Always include publication date information {CMS rule 14.149 and 14.152; no date (n.d.), 15.41}

Contributor, Anna. “Contribution.” In Edited Volume, edited by Ellen Editor. Place: Publisher, forthcoming.

Step 7. Place date(s) after author's name when citing in-text {CMS rule 15.24 and 15.25}

Fiorina et al. (2005) and Fischer and Hout (2006) reach more or less the same conclusions. In contrast, Abramowitz and Saunders (2005) suggest that the mass public is deeply divided between red states and blue states and between churchgoers and secular voters. Migdal’s (2001) work explores the inter-relation between the state and society.

Step 8. Working papers and other unpublished works {CMS rule 14.228 and 14.226; See also: 14.249}
