Style Guide

Typographic portrait, from 32 Beautiful Text Art Creations, posted by Grace Smith in Roundups & Showcases on November 5, 2009Zeteo follows The Chicago Manual of Style. Writers are urged to consult the Manual when preparing their manuscripts.

For detailed information regarding manuscript preparation (including punctuation, footnotes, non-sexist language, that-which and so forth), please see the detailed Zeteo Style Guide currently available in version 3.2. Please note, however, that this guide has been prepared above all for our editorial staff. We are not looking for contributors who are expert copy-editors, we are looking for writers! This does not mean we are prepared to do all the work for our writers. If, for example, a piece includes footnotes, we will expect the writer to prepare them completely and properly. We are prepared, however, to help with this process, and we do not insist that every piece have footnotes, and, again, we are looking for vigorous writing above all.

Contributors and other readers of the Style Guide should feel free to submit comments and suggestions for improvement to the Editors at zeteojournal@gmail.com. These will help us produce a new and improved version 3.? in the months ahead.

For Zeteo book reviewers we have put together a brief guide called Thinking about Zeteo Reviews. This, too, is a work in progress, and we are open to receiving comments at suggestions.
