Manual de Estilo Chicago-Deusto

Manual de Estilo Chicago-Deusto
For more than a century, The Chicago Manual of Style has served as the definitive resource for all who work with words. Its clear, comprehensive advice has made it a global best-seller and a must for any writer or publisher's bookshelf. And now with the first Spanish adaptation of the Manual, this classic reference is fully accessible to Spanish-language editors, writers, authors, and publishers, making this trusted reference available to an international audience.

The University of Deusto presents here a full adaptation, not a mere translation, based on the sixteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. This new work retains much of the structure and underlying style of the English edition of the Manual, but offers tailored advice to those who work with words in Spanish-speaking countries. Drawing on the expertise of the world-renowned University of Deusto, this adaptation places a special emphasis on publishing in the scientific and technical fields--an area that has shown dramatic growth globally in recent years. The Manual de estilo Chicago Deusto includes the most up-to-date digital writing standards, as well as current International Organization for Standardization norms, with attention paid to the latest linguistic suggestions from the Real Academia Española.

The partnership between the University of Chicago Press and the University of Deusto highlights the strengths of two acclaimed institutions, both with track records of more than a century of excellence in academic publishing. The Manual de estilo Chicago Deusto will continue to uphold the high standards readers expect from The Chicago Manual of Style, while taking the Manual into the wide world of Spanish-language writing, editing, and publishing.
