Chicago Style (16th ed.) citation generator by Grafiati and its purpose

Grafiati has long been offering the opportunity to generate bibliographic references in accordance with the requirements of the latest – 17th – edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Chicago Style has been one of the most popular reference standard on our website, and therefore we decided to implement the previous edition of Chicago Style in order to ensure backward compatibility and cover the needs of journals that have not yet adopted the newest rules of CMS.

The Chicago 16 reference generator developed by Grafiati complies with the requirements of the manual’s previous edition.

How is the Chicago (16th ed.) reference generator different from the Chicago (17th ed.) reference generator?
