The 17th Edition of The Chicago Manual of Style is now available, and features Perma.cc in its recommendations. Chapter 14 section 15, regarding sources consulted online, states:
“…authors are strongly encouraged to keep a copy of any source that is not formally published, as a hedge against potential challenges to the research or data before, during, or after publication. […] Copies may be kept in the form of printouts or as digital files (e.g., as PDFs or screen captures), or by means of a permanent link creation service such as Perma.cc.”
Our appreciation to the editors of The Chicago Manual of Style for including Perma.cc as the suggested tool for preserving internet sources. Learn more about Perma.cc, or sign up here!
