The Chicago Manual of Style is available online for an annual fee. Online subscribers have access to the full contents of the 16th and 17th editions, their Q&A, their forum, and more. CMOS offers online subscriptions to individuals on their website, but PEN members are eligible for our group discount.
We now offer four options for CMOS Online:
$34.00 for a one-year subscription (Begins January 2019 or renews current subscriptions. Expires December 2019.)
$60.00 for a two-year subscription* (Begins January 2019 or renews current subscriptions. Expires December 2020.)
$79.00 for a three-year subscription* (Begins January 2019 or renews current subscriptions. Expires December 2021.)
$17.00 for a half-year subscription (July or after only. Expires in December.)
*Two- and three-year subscription renewals require a new account, which does not allow the transfer of existing bookmarks.
Once your subscription is processed, you will receive an email from CMOS Online with instructions to activate your subscription. Be sure to check your spam folder if you have not received it. If you don’t respond to that email, your account will not be activated.
All PEN subscriptions are based on calendar years and expire in December. For renewals, email notices will be sent in November. Payment must be received by December 15 to maintain subscription access. Payments received after December 15 may not be processed until January. Payments not received by January 1 may be deactivated.
