Booklist Review

In this seventh edition, the editors finally conceded to good sense to recommend only one space after punctuation at the end of a sentence, a stance that took academic Twitter by storm. But there are more significant updates to the previous edition (2020) that make scholarly communication clearer and more effective. Guidelines on layout, font, and other formatting issues reflect a better understanding of accessibility and the prevalence of assistive devices like screen readers. The singular ""they"" is encouraged to refer to a person whose gender is unknown, and there is a greatly expanded and updated chapter on bias-free language, addressing not just gender, but also age, disability, racial and ethnic identity, socioeconomic status, and other topics. The new chapter on journal-article reporting standards (JARS) covers what information authors should include for maximum clarity and accuracy for both quantitative and qualitative research. As always, the manual overall is cogently organized and easy to use. Libraries should replace all older editions with this one.--Susan Maguire Copyright 2020 Booklist
