Like e-mail and text messages, comments posted on a social networking service may be cited in running text ("In a message posted to her Twitter account on August 25, 2011, . . .") instead of in parentheses, and they are rarely listed in a reference list. The following example shows a more formal parenthetical citation.
The familiar organization of this popular book remains largely unchanged. Chapter 1 describes the parts of a long formal paper. Chapters 2-5 introduce the mechanics of writing style, from abbreviations to quotations. Chapters 6 and 7 show how to prepare and refer to tables and illustrations. The section on documentation, chapters 8-12, describes two of the most commonly used systems of citation; these chapters provide many examples including guidance on how to cite electronic documents. Chapter 13, on manuscript preparation, shows how to take advantage of word processing software to present the elements of a paper clearly and effectively. Chapter 14 offers more than two dozen sample pages illustrating ways of formatting some of the complex features found in many research papers. Authoritative, comprehensive, easy to use, and filled with good sense, this new edition will be the standard for yet another generation of students and their teachers. Kate Turabian (1893-1987) was dissertation secretary at the University of Chicago from 1930 to 1958. This manual and her "Student's Guide for Writing College Papers" made her name so well known thatshe has become "part of the folklore of Amererican higher education" ( "Quill and Scroll" ). John Grossman prepared and Alice Bennett copyedited the fourteenth edition of "The Chicago Manual of Style."

LibraryThing Review User Review - cargocontainer - LibraryThing This is a general Chicago Manual of Style book. Overall, it is well organized and I gave it an extra half-star for the Oxford comma. I have nothing to compare it to other than some long-ago usage of MLA, which was awful nonsense. Chicago wins over MLA any day of the week. Read full review
