The Citation Style Language (CSL) was created by Bruce D’Arcus, and shaped by early contributions from Simon Kornblith of Zotero. In recent years Frank G. Bennett, Jr. and Rintze M. Zelle have spearheaded further development. The CSL styles and locales repositories on GitHub are maintained by Rintze Zelle and Sebastian Karcher. Other contributors include:
- Sylvester Keil
- Johan Kool
- Johannes Krtek
- Liam Magee
- Charles Parnot (Papers developer)
- Carles Pina (Mendeley developer)
- Andrea Rossato (author of citeproc-hs)
- Dan Stillman (Zotero developer)

The open source CSL project has enjoyed the support of several patrons:
Zotero - Even though CSL and Zotero are independent projects, their roots have always been firmly intertwined. Zotero was the first program to adopt CSL, and Zotero-developer Simon Kornblith contributed to the core design of CSL. Many other CSL contributors (including Frank, Rintze, and Sebastian) first became aware of CSL through their use of Zotero. Zotero also maintained the first repository of CSL styles, which formed the basis of the current CSL styles repository on GitHub. In addition, the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, the creators of Zotero, kindly hosts this website.
Mendeley - Together with Columbia University Libraries, Mendeley obtained an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation grant to build a CSL style editor. The editor was built by Steve Ridout. Mendeley-developer Carles Pina is an active contributor of CSL styles.
Thanks to Johannes Krtek, CSL now has some excellent logos:
