  • Is it “the Smiths’ house” or “the Smith’s house”?
  • Should I underline an URL in my list of reference?
  • How many authors should I list in my reference if there are twenty plus authors in the original paper?

These are just a few examples of questions authors/writers encounter, and there are style guides providing answers and guidelines for these type of questions. Chicago Manual of Style is a preferred style recommended by the JPL Technical Writing Group, and JPL Library is now providing access to the online version.

Go to the URL,, from within the JPL network, and access this reference guide.
