APA 6th Edition - Copenhagen Business School: Edited book

How to reference with APA

About Citing Books

For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and an example will be provided.

The following format will be used:

In-text citation (paraphrase) - entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.

In-text citation (quotation) - entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote.

References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.

Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from the APA Manual (6th ed.).

Edited book

If you are dealing with one editor instead of one author, insert the editor's name in the place of the author's, followed by (Ed.) or (Eds.) for more than one editor.  If you are referring to a chapter by another author within an edited book refer to the section 'Chapter in an edited book'.
